Sydney adventurers to embark on the ultimate Philippines getaway

Travel and adventure are second nature to her, and after visiting 36 countries at only 20 years old, Sarah Gallagher wishes that one day she’d be able to go on the ultimate adventure in the Philippines.

“My dream is to swim with whale sharks in the Philippines”, says Sarah of Penshurst NSW.

So when she saw Tourism Philippines Australia and New Zealand’s ‘The Ultimate Philippines Getaway’ promo on Facebook and Instagram, showing the top adventures in the most popular Philippine destinations of Palawan, Boracay, Cebu, Bohol, Sorsogon and Siargao, she immediately joined the promo and voted for her dream adventure.

Sarah’s creatively crafted and pun-filled response to why she’d like to swim with whale sharks and who she’d take with her caught the judges’ attention amongst the thousands of entries and responses received.

“I would take my whaley awesome best friend, Lauren. This trip would krill me! I whale love snorkelling no matter what! If I don’t win, you know the saying; if there’s a whale there is a way. Whale the Philippines be mine!” was her winning response.

Sarah’s dream adventure will soon be a reality, and with best mate Lauren Cambitzi of St. Ives NSW, both will embark on the ultimate Philippines getaway.

Their itinerary will comprise the most voted adventures including swimming with whale sharks in Donsol, Sorsogon; exploring hidden lakes and lagoons in Coron, Palawan and chilling on the best beaches in the Philippines.

‘The Ultimate Philippines Getaway’ promo ran from September to October 2016 on Facebook and Instagram and was available in NSW Australia.

Tourism Philippines Australia and New Zealand partnered with Cebu Pacific Air to bring the adventure of a lifetime to one winner and their travel companion.

Again, our congratulations to Sarah and Lauren who will surely have a whale of a time!
