A Girgarre woman is off to XXXX Island, after scoring the prize at the inaugural Bulls ‘N’ Beats festival at Barooga on the weekend.

Cara Behnoke won the trip, valued at $10000, via a shuffleboard skills based-challenge.

‘‘I can’t believe I’ve won,’’ Cara said yesterday.

‘‘This really is the trip of a lifetime.

‘‘I’ve got no idea what to expect, but I’m really looking forward to it.’’

XXXX Island is designed to be the ultimate destination for mates’ trips away, offering Aussies the chance to experience what XXXX Gold terms the ‘good life’ — a relaxing few days where you can do as little, or as much, as you want with activities including fishing, touch footy, beach cricket, swimming in the ocean or simply barbecuing the catch of the day with a beer in hand.

‘‘I just have to make the tough decision on which mates to take,’’ Cara said.
