Hosted on the official Sydney Australia Facebook Page, Australia's Tourism New South Wales (NSW) announced today the launch of its Sydney Facebook Life Points Contest. The contest gives US globetrotters the chance to win an unforgettable vacation including roundtrip airfare on V Australia, staying at the Sydney Harbour YHA.

From September 9-October 31, Facebook members can enter the Sydney Facebook Life Points Contest by becoming a "fan" of Sydney, Australia. Fans will complete their entry by choosing their favorite Sydney Life Points experience and posting it on the Sydney, Australia wall. Need more inspiration? Fans of Sydney, Australia can also add the Life Points application - a forum for modern day nomads to share and aspire to adventures in Sydney, Australia - to their profile where they can explore even more of what Sydney has to offer. Two lucky winners will be awarded a dream vacation for two to Sydney where they will experience all that the city has to offer.

NSW Minister for Tourism Jodi McKay said: "We are thrilled to offer an innovative way for young travelers and adventure fans to win a trip to Sydney. Our city, set against a breathtaking natural environment, is a wonderful place to live, work, and holiday."

The dream vacation will include two international economy return flights from Los Angeles to Sydney provided by V Australia, Australia's newest international airline, offering impeccable service with a smile, delicious dining, cutting-edge entertainment, and three cabin classes - all on board the world's largest long-range, twin-engine aircraft. Seven nights' accommodation will be provided by Sydney Harbour YHA, an exciting new development in Sydney featuring budget accommodation, a hands-on archaeological and heritage education experience of Sydney, and, of course, stunning views of Sydney's famous harbor.
