Friday Saturday Sunday


Celebrating the three best days of the week, this book makes them even more special. There are just 52 weekends in a year - why not make them all perfect?

That was the aim of Explore Australia who contacted a food and travel expert in each state of Australia and asked them to select their favourite places and create a perfect itinerary for every moment, every meal, of these 52 long weekends away.

The result is a book that you will not be able to leave alone. Dip into each state's chapter and dream a little. Check your diary and plan some more. You may not get to every one of these places this year - but, hey! There's always next year too.


PS Sally Hammond (that's me) researched and wrote the NSW chapter.


Friday, Saturday, Sunday - 52 perfect weekends in Australia, published by Explore Australia, 2015, paperback, rrp A$39.95.
