Weekend retreats

Weekend retreats

The beachside weekender is an Australian tradition. On a weekly, monthly or yearly basis, workers retreat in droves to their own slices of paradise. Families return year in, year out, often seeing their best-kept secrets evolve into booming tourist attractions, such as Byron Bay and Kiama on the east coast.
The ulimate beach retreat, though, is known as Schoolies Week. Every year, impending high-school graduates make pilgrimages to meccas such as the Gold Coast - a strip of 26 patrolled beaches between Sydney and Brisbane - to recover from final exams. A week of beach parties, nightclubs and summer romance ensues
