The weekend is almost upon us, and we're almost at the time of the week where we begin to scramble for weekend plans. Although it can be tempting to spend Saturday and Sunday on the couch recovering from the working week that was, there's simply too many great events, gigs and shows taking place across Australia for us to miss. Whether you prefer a low-key excursion to the cities best markets, are wanting to experience the best art exhibitions on offer, or want to escape the city all-together for a last-minute weekend away, we have you covered.
