					              The Best Available Weekend Getaways in Australia

It is now becoming a popular choice for people to take a weekend break as opposed
to taking long annual holidays. And those living in Australia are no different. Sydney
is a great option for a weekend break as this city is home to two of the most famous
landmarks such as the Harbor Bridge that towers 440 feet and the world famous
Sydney Opera House. Sydney is a multi cultural modern city that offers sunshine
almost all year round and is also home to one of the most magnificent botanical
gardens in Australia. Experience the surfer’s culture and beautiful beaches at
Sandringham, Bondi and Coogee. Get away from the mainland and take a ferry
across to Manly.

Manly is a tiny suburb that has the most spectacular coastline and the streets still
depict the 1950’s, or you can visit the Gold Coast, Blue Mountains or Surfer’s
paradise which are all great Australian weekend getaways. The liveliest city is
Melbourne which is Australia’s cultural and arts hub and Melbourne also houses
major sporting venues and Australia’s media outlets. Melbourne hosts the Grand
Prix, Football, Tennis and Cricket annually. Melbourne city is filled with charm and
character. A stone throw away from Melbourne CBD is St Kilda which hosts beautiful
beaches as well as Fitzroy, Yarra and Brunswick. There are great package deals on
offer for that special weekend break away. Experience the café alleyway culture, high
end restaurants and pubs, sophisticated night life, the art, music and theatre scene
and much more. The fourth most popular city in Western Australia is Perth which is
also one of the fastest growing cities. As opposed to the east coast the west coast
beaches offer more expansive views and generally flatter beaches. For sunbathers
and surfers and great waves beaches such as Cottesloe, Scarbough and Sorentto are
ideal. Spend a weekend at Monkey Mia in Fremantle which is a popular resort and
you get to interact with wild bottlenose dolphins. Take a drive to the laidback
bohemian untouched western coast of Perth where you can enjoy the heat and red
sands of Broome and the natural scenic wonders of Kimberly.

Another vibrant metropolis on the coast of Queensland is Brisbane with its state of
the art man made beach in the city centre. Spend some time exploring the Fortitude
Valley markets or up Story Bridge, or spend time at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
feeding the kangaroos or interacting with the koala bears. You can also travel up
north to Whitsunday’s Airlie Beach or travel south to the Sunshine or Gold Coast. No
matter how you choose to spend your week end break there are great packages for
every occasion.
