The banks of the river come alive on Sundays with markets that cater to every taste. If it's the ocean breeze that you crave, then you could head over to the Gold coast which is just an hour's drive away, to enjoy its pristine beaches, not to mention attractions like Sea World, and Movie World. A long weekend is an ideal time to take a two-hour flight to the Great Barrier Reef, which is Australia's iconic tourist landmark and a living national treasure.
