The weekend is nigh. With it, it brings the opportunity to cocoon yourself in bed, if you so choose, or brave the great outdoors for some social action. It's also NAIDOC week, a time to uplift, honour and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and culture. If you're looking for ways to get involved, we've got you.
And for a further round-up of things to do this weekend, continue on. Enjoy your time off!
