The Little Weekender


Welcome to The Little Weekender.

In Australia, a ‘weekender’ is a slang term for a holiday cottage or shack. Somewhere the family packs up and goes each weekend to escape the every day and have a bit of a break. Most of us associate the weekender with a place by the beach, but plenty of people choose quiet pockets in country towns for their weekender as well.

We’ve gone ahead and twisted the idea of the ‘weekender’. There are so many places to see and things to do in Australia, we just couldn’t limit ourselves to one spot.

We started ‘The Little Weekender’ for a few reasons.

  • We would never be able to choose between bush and beach for an actual weekender
  • We have been struggling with an ongoing issue in our lives – ITCHY FEET
  • We love travelling. But with a 2-year-old and a mortgage, we need to change the way we travel for a little while

We decided 2016 was our year to get back on the road. We look forward to sharing our little jaunts with you. Maybe it will provide some inspiration for you to try our version of the ‘weekender’.
