WATCH: Proud Alyce shows off Gong to the world

Imagine having the money and the freedom to go anywhere and see anything. What would be on your bucket list?

Alyce Nehme spent the past few weeks pondering that question after entering the Biggest Baddest Bucket List competition.

And after much deliberation, the Wollongong resident has come up with a few ideas.

"I would definitely go trekking in Nepal, to Carnival in Brazil and to Oktoberfest in Germany," she said.

"I want to visit the Amazon, go on safari in Africa and climb Uluru."

The competition, run by UK travel website My Destination, reads like a dream for those who love to travel: the winner receives a six-month, all expenses paid trip to six continents, as well as a $50,000 cash prize.

All the winner has to do is blog along the way, an easy task when the subject is the streets of Paris or the treasures of Egypt.

Entrants had to submit a three-minute video and a travel story, both showcasing a destination of their choice.

Ms Nehme stumbled across the competition only a week before the closing date of March 31 and said the amazing prize inspired her to enter.

And rather than look overseas for her video entry, she decided instead to focus on the beauty of her home town.

"No-one else had done their video on Wollongong. A lot of people had focused on Carnival in Brazil or Paris, the typical ones, so I decided that I was going to show Wollongong," said Ms Nehme, who works in the field of cancer research at the University of New South Wales.

Her quirky video captures the guts and glory of Wollongong, from the breathtaking views of Sea Cliff Bridge to the unique characters of Dapto Dogs.

"I wanted to show people how beautiful Wollongong still is," said Ms Nehme, who, if successful, planned to donate some of her prize money to cancer research.

If she wins, Ms Nehme will have to chose a minimum of 25 places to visit across six continents. The top 10 finalists will be announced on April 15, with the winner decided on May 24.
