IT'S not every day you get to pick between $5000 in cold hard cash or a luxury cruise.

But one lucky Whitsunday Coast Guardian reader will get that chance just by entering the Guardian and Reef Gateway Hotel's Cash or Cruise competition.

And it won't be long before the winner is announced.

The draw will be on April 8 with a massive event ready to take place to celebrate the lucky local winner.

Running for 10 nights, the cruise will take guests from Sydney to New Zealand on board Ovation of the Seas, one of the first innovators of "super cruising”.

Whitsunday Times general manager Steven Jacklin said, as the end drew nearer, readers were urged to submit their entries.

"The draw is closing quick with only four weeks left to get your entries in to win this fantastic prize,” he said.

"Purchase your Whitsunday Coast Guardian today and head down to the Reef Gateway Hotel.”
