Some spend their two days of respite languishing amongst their sheets, others prefer a back-to-back schedule of activities. With the weekend fast approaching, and so much out there to be done, we are opting for the latter option, for once. Whether it be treating yourself to the Australian Ballet's Anna Karenina, or strolling through a market place for farm fresh produce. Below, is a round up of what to do this weekend across Australia. Happy weekend-ing.
