Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway with a special person, a short break with the family, something fun to do with a group of friends or a memorable way to celebrate a landmark birthday, few things are better than a weekend away.
Diverse Landscapes To Choose From
Here in Australia we are blessed with stunning scenery and have glorious coastlines and idyllic beach houses to enjoy in the summertime, dramatic snowy peaks for snug cabins and cuddling up in winter and vast stretches of eucalpyt and rainforests with cottages and eco lodges that can be explored all year round. We are lucky enough to be able to experience all four seasons within our own unique country and to can choose from romantic weekends away in a cozy ski lodge in the snowfields of Victoria or decide on a lazy beach escape in the sun of tropical Queensland all in the month of July.
Marvelous Capital Cities
Our capital cities are some of the most beautiful on the planet and are perfect for short breaks and long weekends. Sydney is flashy and trendy with her rightly famous Harbour, Opera House and Harbour Bridge, decorating one of the most astounding series of bays you will ever see. However, Sydney isn’t just glitz and glamour, she also has great beaches and walks, along with her excellent bars, restaurants and clubs. Melbourne is a city of culture with superb exhibitions to attract visitors in the colder months, a Spring Racing Carnival capped by the Melbourne Cup and the relaxed beaches and wineries of the Mornington Peninsula only an hour or so away. Apart from these more obvious weekend getaway destinations, Canberra is ideal for a weekend trip with her various museums offering something for everyone, Perth has a laidback vibe which will really recharge your depleted batteries and Adelaide has 2 world-class wine growing areas – the Clare Valley and Barossa Valley – on her doorstep.
Different Kinds Of Getaway
Given that we have beaches, forests, rolling hills, snow, dessert and numerous fascinating cities and country towns to choose from, it’s not surprising that we also have a vast range of short breaks to choose from. Perhaps you’re looking for a romantic escape with someone special and fancy an indulgent spa weekend, complete with spa treatments such as massage, facials and aromatherapy? Or maybe a family weekend away in a beach shack is more to your tastes? Do you like fine food and wine? If so, a getaway to one of our fantastic wine regions, complete with a winery tour could be just your thing. Or are you an adrenalin junkie whose idea of a perfect getaway involves white water rafting, kayaking, game fishing or sky diving? Whatever is that will make your ideal escape, you’ll find it somewhere in Australia.
Take A Break Overseas
And let’s not forget that there are some fabulous short break destinations a quick flight away in countries places like Bali, Singapore, and New Zealand. So let’s not limit our plans solely to Australia.
Whilst most of us would really love a couple of weeks off work, totally relaxing on a fabulous holiday, the reality is that for many people a quick weekend away once in a while is the best they can manage aside from the one big trip each year.
