XXXX Gold flows with opportunity

A GOLDEN opportunity is being offered to Clarence Valley residents when the XXXX Gold Retreat B-Double truck roars into Grafton next week for the Ramornie and Grafton Cup race meetings.

Locals who quench their thirst track side at the XXXX Gold Retreat, which transforms into a unique two level country-style pub will be invited to participate in a range of skill-based challenges, including the XXXX Island Challenge for a chance to win a trip for four to XXXX Island.

Designed as the ultimate destination for mates to experience a few relaxing days doing as little or as much as they desire, XXXX Island offers the perfect setting for beach cricket, a sizzling barbie and a few cold XXXX beers.

And XXXX Gold is offering locals the chance to be among the first Australians to set foot on its beautiful shores.

Anyone interested in experiencing the thrill of XXXX Island is encouraged to take on the skill-challenges.

The XXXX Gold Angels will also perform their newest dance moves at the XXXX Gold Retreat during the July Racing Carnival.
