Twelve Gumtree long weekend holidays to book

Carvan

Now that the gifts are unwrapped, the holiday treats are eaten, and the decorations are put away, many of us are getting back to work. But with Australia day already upon us and the summer sun beckoning us outdoors, why not ease back into the year with a long weekend or two exploring the countryside? Whether you’re getting away to the mountains or heading to the beach, Gumtree has some great long weekend holidays to book.

You’ll find cozy cottages, beachside bungalows, and spacious rambling homes where you can spend a night or two. One of the best ways to get around and see the sights during the day is the comfort of your own campervan. If you don’t have one or would like to upgrade to a new one, check out the caravans on Gumtree before you plan your long weekend. Then pack some toys for both the grown-ups and the kids, stock the campervan with your favourite foods, and pile in for a long weekend adventure.
