Top Five Ideas for your Next Weekend Getaway


Who doesn’t need a break from routine? With all the stress and demands of a busy working life, it’s important for our mental and social well being to relax and defrag our souls – and a great weekend getaway is just the ticket. Escape from the hustle and bustle of urban living and enjoy a more carefree lifestyle for awhile – you deserve it.

Whether you’re looking for a kid friendly accommodation for a trip with the family or eager for a romantic getaway to stir up those loving fires, here are some fun ideas to help you plan your next weekend getaway.

Hit the beach – when it comes to a romantic holiday, nothing tops a beachside resort. We do love the surf and sun and the Australian landscape has been pretty generous on that front with so many beaches to choose from, and they’re all just a short drive away. If you’re coming from Sydney or Melbourne, head to the coast and visit fabulous destinations such as Avoca Beach or Jervis Bay. If you’re further north, spend some time on the many spectacular beaches along the Sunshine Coast or even head up to Northern Queensland. Stay on the Gold Coast , be within minutes of spectacular ocean views and Cheap Accommodation Gold Coast.

Get ready to paint the town red – Australia has a medley of cultural hot spots and entertainment centres and your choice of capital cities. You can spend a day in the glitz and glam of the big lights in Sydney or visit Melbourne and cosy up in a little jazz club. Indulge in a bit of the fine culture and take your family to the opera. Or embark on an eating holiday and sample the many fine local dishes when you check into hotels.

Enjoy a wine tour – if nothing else, Australia is blessed with many outstanding wine regions so we have quite a range of local drops. Areas such as the Hunter Valley in NSW, Margaret River in WA, Barossa Valley, Tamar Valley, Adelaide Hills – the possibilities are endless. Stay at a cosy bed and breakfast or self contained apartment and make the most of your stay.

Go bush – what better way to take yourself away from the hectic city lifestyle than getting back in touch with nature. Australia’s glorious landscape is awe inspiring – from the majestic Blue Mountains to the Great Ocean Road, and they’re all just moments away from the capital cities. Spend a night under the stars – living in the city, you probably haven’t even seen them in awhile.

Have a staycation – long weekend coming and missed out on all the Last Minute Accommodation? Why not spend a weekend away at home? With the global financial crisis, more and more Australians are tightening the belt and cutting back on their spending, and this includes the holiday budget. However, you can still enjoy a great weekend in your city – check into a local hotel, see the sites, become a tourist! You’ll be amazed at how much fun it can be.
