Geraldton man Ben Foster will take off on a spectacular scenic flight over the Abrolhos Islands after claiming first-prize in Sun City Plumbing's recent Facebook giveaway.

Ben's prize includes a full day of action and adventure on the Abrolhos Islands with flights, a guided-nature walk and snorkelling, just some of the highlights.

After learning he was the lucky winner, Ben said he was in shock and couldn't believe he won the trip to the Islands.

"One of my friends tagged me in the announcement and I had to look twice,” he said. "I've never won anything before, let alone a prize this big!"

Ben said he was planning on taking his partner on the trip.

"It's a spectacular place and it will be her first time to the group," he said. "I'm really looking forward to it."

Sun City Plumbing Director Mick Chester said April to May was the best time to visit the first-class Abrolhos Islands.

"Not only is Sun City Plumbing passionate about supporting the community, we are enthusiastic about all that the Mid West has to offer," he said.

"The Abrolhos Islands form one of Western Australia's most unique marine areas and it's great to give Ben the opportunity to experience the Group.

"I'd like to thank everyone who supported the promotion."

Run by local company Geraldton Air Charter, the tour is a perfect opportunity to experience the pristine Abrolhos Islands and indulge in history and nature.
