Short Breaks From Sydney
Indulge in some well deserved R&R
They say a change is as good as a holiday, but maybe a holiday is the change you've been craving! Sydney pretty much has it all – iconic landmarks, sun-soaked beaches, cosmopolitan character and the birth of a nation in its past. The hustle and bustle of Australia's oldest and largest city can be demanding and it's important to take a short break from time to time and gain some composure. Keeping things local, spend a peaceful weekend in the Blue Mountains with plenty of wide open spaces to breathe deep, warm and welcoming cottage stays and heritage towns exuding quaint charm.
Plan your weekend getaway in Queensland's sunny capital Brisbane, blossoming with sophistication yet holding strong to its 'big country town' character. With Brisbane as a base, why not hire a car and head to the Gold Coast for balmy nights with a cocktail in hand, or to the Sunshine Coast to lunch by the sea and step onto the beach from your hotel? If you're looking for a winter reprieve, spend a few days in North Queensland where summer never really ends. Hot spots Cairns and nearby Port Douglas are gateways to some of Australia's best natural wonders like the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, perfect for daytrips over a long weekend.
Swap the bright city lights for a star-filled sky with an outback weekend adventure. Visit the Northern Territory and be surprised by the cultural delights of laidback Darwin, discover the untamed waterways of Katherine and see breathtaking sunsets in the Red Centre. For a romantic weekend away, South Australia's Barossa Valley and Margaret River outside Perth are ideal for a special trip for two.
