The leafy streets of Castlemaine offer an intriguing blend of gold-rush-era heritage and a thriving community of modern makers, artists and produce merchants. It also makes a perfect destination for a weekend getaway.

In partnership with Visit Victoria, we’re giving you and a friend the opportunity to escape the busy city for two nights to enjoy meals at two of Castlemaine’s best restaurants and bars on us.

The prize includes two night’s accommodation at the lush Riversdale Retreat, an award-winning designer home nestled in native Australian bush. You’ll enjoy lunch worth $300 at Bress where you can also explore the 66-acre property, which features a vineyard, orchard and garden filled with fresh fruit and vegetables. In the evening, move on to Public Inn inside Castlemaine's 1906-built fire station, where you’ll have dinner and drinks worth $300.

Your weekend getaway to Castlemaine can be taken any time before June 2018. All you need to do is enter your details below. Entries close June 29

See Broadsheet's Out of Town to Castlemaine guide for suggestions for the entire weekend.

This competition is now closed. Broadsheet would like to thank everyone who entered and congratulate our lucky winner Sarah D.
