What a broken few weeks it’s been with public holidays at every turn but now it’s time to say goodbye to these glorious free days because Monday is our last one until October! For Queensland that is.

In preparation for the next few gruelling months without any breaks we’ve delivered, with 5 ways to cling to the endless summer on the Gold Coast and Brisbane over this last long weekend. With the weather set to be amazing we’ve got just the thing to keep your weekend going for as long as we can.

1. Bottomless Brunch

Bottomless mimosas, need we say more? Hyde Paradiso is offering a brunch for $89 pp and there’s just no better way to ease yourself into the long weekend. All you need to worry about is who to bring and what to wear and they’ll take care of the rest.

2. The Bath House

If you’re after a more relaxed weekend then we highly recommend the Bath House in Burleigh. You can choose from 6 different packages ranging from $40pp to $175pp depending on your budget and no matter the choice you’ll leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, ready to ease into the rest of the working year.

3. Driftwood Social

Get that poolside club vibe from one of Gold Coast’s newer establishments. Start the weekend off right with their $12 cocktails and $5 wines on Friday or settle in for their epic Sunday Sesh with $25 sangria jugs and $30 beer buckets. The choice is yours but either way you’ll be in for a good time.

4. Post Malone

For something a little more exciting you could grab yourself some last minute tickets to Post Malone for the Saturday or Sunday. To make a full weekend out of it, book some accomodation and head out afterwards.

5. Seafood Festival

Paging all foodies, this seafood festival is the only way to be spending your long weekend. Seafood trucks, pop up bars, live acts, ping pong and more… Plus the best part, it’s free entry so you don’t need to worry about spending a small fortune to attend.
