About The Weekender

About Us

We aim to be the most trusted source of information for travellers looking to take short breaks outside Australia’s capital cities. The Weekender is packed full of local knowledge about fabulous weekend destinations including where to go, stay and eat in each region.

Our travel guides are written by passionate and talented writers, who are travellers themselves. Their goal is to give you the low down on experiences and destinations that are authentic, unique and fun. Regular posts include where to find a great breakfast, the best local walks and beaches, fun local markets to visit and unique one-of-a-kind festivals and events. We only work with real writers who cover real experiences and have real personality! And we’re always looking for new writers – so get in touch if you have a story to tell or a great place to share.

Why are we different?

We don’t like ads but we love real information.

We know you’re busy and want to be your shortcut to a great weekend away.

We know there are incredible escapes, experiences and adventures just waiting to be found outside the big city, and want to help you find them.

We love connecting you with real people in the destinations we feature.

We feel great when we connect you directly with the owners or local managers of holiday accommodation and remove the large booking sites from the process.

We love helping unique local businesses to shine.
