Spontaneity and travel can be best mates, especially when there are cheap air fares on offer. Just add a couple of days to a weekend, throw a few clothes in a bag and skip off to the airport. Nothing feels quite as good as taking a short travel break on the spur of the moment. If you're a more considered sort of person, you might want to book a series of weekend getaways and short breaks throughout the year. Then there's always something to look forward to.
For many, the lure of the Pacific is hard to resist for a mini holiday. Destinations like the Sunshine Coast, Samoa, Fiji and Rarotonga have the warm waters and powder-soft sands that are compulsory for romantic getaways. And don't forget Niue – it has some of the best snorkelling and cave adventures in the Pacific. For others, a mini break means a steady procession of fabulous menus and equally good shopping experiences. Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide are all ready to oblige with great short trip ideas.
