Plan your perfect Gippsland vacay with these cheeky deals on offer right now

Victorians are in the midst of a seemingly endless public holiday drought… so why not just step up and take one!

We all love extending a weekend away when there’s a public holiday, but did you know we are currently in the longest gap between public holidays in Victoria across the entire year. So, what do you do as you enter the Public Holiday Drought? Very sad, we know. 

So with that in mind, it’s time we start making our own long weekends, because hell, we deserve it after the last couple of years we’ve all had. It’s time to take a day of annual leave and stay that extra night – more downtime, more me-time, more relaxation… a step ahead of the crowds.
