Australia’s Top Weekend Getaways

Are you looking for a weekend getaway in Australia, but have no ideas as to where to go, and what to do when you get there? If so, read on!


First things first, you will need to figure out a location, and what activities you would like to do when you get there. As always, your best bet when it comes to doing this kind of back work is a visit to the internet. There are many sites out there that will assist you in making your decision as to where to head for, and what to do. So, if its a surfing lesson on the Sydney Coast, or diving with Dolphins in Perth, you can get information and reviews online, from people who have already been there, and done the activity. This way, there should be no nasty surprises in store upon your arrival.

Now, perhaps you are in the market for something a little more unusual and definitely more easy going. What about taking a trip to one of Austalia’s fantastic wine regions, as a break from the Norm.  Many wine regions, such as Clare Valley, are like villages, with shops, restaurants, markets and pubs to visit. As well as the vineyard itself of course. So, your visit to clare valley will definitely be a great way to just relax for a while, and unwind. Everything you need is on your doorstep, so you will have no worries for the weekend.

However, maybe you have an adventure in mind – perhaps an Outback tour is the answer to your quest. Or maybe even an Aboriginal tour. There are many beach tours now in operation in Oz, such as exploring Sydney’s beaches, which would allow you to take in Bondi Beach, head up the coast further to Tamarama, and continuing on to Coogee. If you’re looking for a way to get round in Sydney you’re in luck because it’s easy to find a great Sydney car service.

For something more activity orientated, you could take in a mountain style tour, with activities like mountain biking, abseiling, hiking, kayaking and orienteering being favourites. If you wanted to stick to the beach scene, you could always rent some surf gear or maybe even some jet ski’s, and break some waves.

The list of options available to you is endless really, and when well researched, you will be able to plan the perfect getaway weekend, whether its just for you, or for the whole family. Keep an eye on online reviews and you should find that this will be of benefit when it comes to choosing your trip.
