Groovin the Moo and Two-Up: Here’s what’s happening across Australia this weekend

A double-barrel long weekend will always put us in a good mood. Some of you will rise early for Anzac Day Dawn Service, others will sleep right through careful to soak up the day off face planted in the pillows. Either way, with the prospect of a three-day weekend stretching out before us, you're not short on things to do. From Groovin the Moo at three different locations, two-up at your local pub, the Emma Mulholland on Holiday sale in South Yarra, take this guide from the RUSSH team on what's on this weekend across Australia. Enjoy!
