Are you Australia's Greatest Adventurer?

Get a $10,000 adrenalin rush in Tropical North Queensland

Scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef, bungy jumping in the Daintree Rainforest, whitewater rafting in Tully — these are just some of the heart-pumping activities that give Tropical North Queensland its reputation as Australia's hub of adventure tourism. Tourism Tropical North Queensland's latest campaign is an Australia-wide search for action men and women who are worthy of the title of 'Australia's Greatest Adventurer'.

The winner, other than getting a bit of fame and glory, will receive a $10,000 seven-night action-packed adventure for two in Tropical North Queensland, plus a Panasonic Lumix FT3 adventure-friendly camera. All you've got to do is visit and tell them in 250 words or less what your ultimate week-long adventure would be. Upload a photo of your adventurous self, and you're in the draw.

More than 130 people have entered so far, and they'll be judged by 10 local adventure champions and athletes on how creative their entries are and how well they know the area. Entries are open till May 31, and the winner will be announced on June 15.

It's a great campaign that's well worth supporting, especially since everything's back to business as usual in Queensland following the natural disasters earlier this year. Read more about Queensland's comeback here.
