Win a winter escape to an island paradise

Welcome to week two of our fantastic winter getaway prize.

With the winter weather taking its first few bites out of our extended summer, the thought of a warm tropical island getaway is very appealing.

Over the next five weeks, Sunday Detours will visit five of our Pacific Island neighbours and, in conjunction with Air New Zealand and Air New Zealand Holidays, we are giving you the chance to win a getaway to one of them.

The prize is two return economy airfares and three nights' accommodation, courtesy of Air New Zealand Holidays, for two people to your choice of: Rarotonga, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji or Vanuatu.

To enter, follow the stories over the next five weeks and answer the question that follows each one.

At the end of the series send all five answers to with Air NZ Winter Getaway in the subject line, or post them to us at Air NZ Winter Getaway, Sunday Detours, PO Box 3290, Auckland.

Be sure to include your name, address and contact phone number.

Entries close at 5pm, May 29 and the winner will be published in Sunday Detours on June 1.

Travel period July 1 to March 31 (close-out dates apply and subject to availability). Details at
