Need a few days away to recharge your batteries?

It's amazing what you can fit into a weekend if you have the determination. Imagine spending your days off learning to surf in Noosa, rubbing shoulders with the arts crowd in Melbourne's laneways or treating your tastebuds to the freshest fruit at Hobart's Salamanca Market. You don't have to wait for major holidays like Christmas or Easter to take time for yourself – enjoy a small slice of luxury with one of Flight Centre's short breaks any time of the year.

Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just need a few days to recharge your batteries, Australia's cities are bursting with ideas for short breaks. Fancy dinner and a show in energetic Sydney? Perhaps you would rather book a room with a riverside view in Brisbane or mellow out with a tropical retreat in Darwin? If you fancy venturing off the beaten track, book a cosy countryside stay at the scenic Blue Mountains or a tour of Adelaide's wine country where you can sample a vintage or two.

Instead of waiting for an annual reprieve, why not add a few short breaks to your calendar? Weekend adventures are also great if you have a modest travel budget – check out some of the 2 and 3 night deals Flight Centre has on offer. See more of your own backyard or squeeze in quick overseas holiday to neighbouring New Zealand for road trips through rural farmland, skiing in Queenstown or inner-city adventures in Auckland. Anytime is a good time for a mental health break so you can return relaxed, refreshed and ready to take on whatever the daily grind throws your way. Leave your long weekend plans in the capable hands of Flight Centre and we will have your flights, accommodation and transport organised in no time!
