52 weekends away
On-Sale: Saturday 23rd October
In the 31st year of our much-loved 52 Weekends Away franchise, Good Weekend collaborates with its Nine stablemate, Traveller, to present 52 of our favourite places to stay nationwide, from city to country, modest to opulent. Given the long delays caused by international travel restrictions and the gradual opening up of state borders, this will be one of our most eagerly anticipated issues of the year, as much for armchair dreaming as for weekends-away planning purposes. For our 768,000 highly engaged readers, who are educated, cultured and love to explore the world around them, it can’t come soon enough.

The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded Australians how wonderful this wide brown land is, and has got us thinking, talking and dreaming about the places nationwide that we love to visit, and the places on our national bucket lists that we’re now keen to tick off. In Good Weekend’s second last issue for the year, we have asked our stable of brilliant writers to each pen a piece about the place in Australia they absolutely love. Covering every state and territory, these evocative pieces will remind readers just how wonderful it is to holiday at home – what riches we have, right here in our own backyard.
