Weekends away are a great option for those wanting a holiday without all the stresses of planning that come with it.

We’ve listed our favourite locations a short drive from Sydney to help get you started.

Check them out here:

Blue Mountains

One of New South Wales holy grails, the Blue Mountains hold scenic views entirely unmatched.

Campers can take a zipline over the cliff faces and bushlands or take a hike through the greenery for a change of pace from Sydney.

Avoca Beach

Avoca Beach is a small coastal village just a short drive from Sydney for those not wanting the longer commute. Take a look through the many rock pools or stroll along the coastline to switch it up on your weekend away.

The Hunter Valley

To really shake it up, try a weekend getaway in the Hunter Valley.

For the adults- the place is surrounded with wineries and vineyards. For the kids there are endless fields and farmlands that are the perfect way to stretch the legs.

Somersby Falls

Lush rainfalls and dense rainforests perfectly encapsulate the vibe of Somersby Falls.

Barbeques, picnic areas, you can’t go wrong.


If you’re getting into weekends away, give Wollongong a try.

Great for long walks and restaurants- the relaxed atmosphere is the perfect way to spend your weekend.
