What’s on this weekend across Australia

things to do this weekend australia

The long weekend is nigh, and the bliss of four whole days to settle into rest and relaxation is a time of year that we can all look forward to. Some of us will be travelling interstate, some of us staying closer to home. Most of us, wanting to make the most out of the glorious long weekend ahead.

In the spirit of this, we're rounding up what's on this weekend - a guide to eating, drinking, dancing, and dreaming in your home-for-the-weekend or local stomping ground. Because we could all use a little inspiration that strays from the Easter Show, right?
