Should I stay or should I go? Inspiration for your long weekend

Wondering how to spend this long weekend? Here are a few ideas to inspire your last-minute planning.. 

The June long weekend is just around the corner – for everyone except Queensland and Western Australia, at least. We don’t make the rules. 

So, if you’re in a typical 9-5 job, chances are you have three whole days to spend however you please. 

For some states (NSW I’m looking at you), this is the last long weekend until spring, so you’re going to want to make the most of it.  

If you’ve left it to the last minute to plan something, don’t fret. There are still heaps of ways you can enjoy the public holiday weekend. Here are some ideas you might consider.  

Make it memorable with a weekend getaway 

Who doesn’t love to escape for a few days to relax and unwind over the long weekend? Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway with your love, glamping with friends or a peaceful country retreat for some ‘you’ time, Redballoon has you covered, with a whole host of accommodation packages to make your long weekend one to remember. The only stressful part will be deciding which one of the numerous options to choose.  

Plan an unforgettable experience

What better way to celebrate the public holiday than indulging your passion – whatever that may be – with an unforgettable experience. 

If you’re the adventurous type, you could go shark diving, bungee jumping or even skydiving. Go on – tick off that big bucket list item!

If wellness is your thing, maybe it’s time to destress with a full day at the spa. Or, if you’re looking for something a little more luxurious, you could opt for an indulgent dining experience. With Vivid Sydney now in full swing, there are special ways to enjoy the festival before it packs up for another year, from multi-sensory dining experiences to tall ship cruises

Stay home and treat yourself

If you’re determined to stay home to nest this long weekend, there are still plenty of ways to make the most of it.  

Maybe it’s a good time to get some odd jobs done around the house – you know, the ones that have been put on the long finger for, what, six months?

Or perhaps it’s time to refresh your space with some quality pieces such as that new sofa you’ve been talking about or the mattress of your dreams. 

As the temperatures drop and the winter chill sets in, it could be the perfect time to invest in your winter wardrobe; think cosy knits, fluffy dressing gowns and slippers

However you plan to spend this long weekend, from flying in a hot air balloon to fixing a leaky roof, humm can help. You can pay for goods and services up to $30,000 with humm, and make repayments in installments.
