If It Ends in ‘Y’, Then You Can Do Something with it – Why Mid-Week Getaways are the Best Kind of Getaway
If you’re fortunate enough to have mid-week weekends, or perhaps retirement means your on permanent holiday. Then you need to discover the benefits of the mid-week escape.
Getaways shouldn’t be just for special occasions or the ‘traditional’ holiday periods. You can take an escape any time of the year. And if you’re retired, you can go anytime of the week too! How wonderful is that?!
If you’ve been dreaming of exploring the wonderful world around us, but never found the time in years past, then it is time to put your retirement freedom into action. Plus, getting out of town during the mid-week has dozens of perks.
Don’t Fight the Traffic
Driving to your destination of choice? Leave after peak hour when all those poor suckers are commuting to work and you’ll have yourself a clean clear run out of town, straight to relaxationville.
Think of the most popular weekend and holiday destinations near you. Think about the nightmare of getting there after 3 pm on a Friday, or getting home on a Sunday afternoon. An hour trip quickly becomes two, even three. Dread. The thought is gross enough to turn you off even going in the first place.
If you’ve never had the chance to get there on a weekday due to work commitments, and no, school holiday weekdays don’t count. Then you are in for a treat. At worst there is traffic heading towards the city from new arrivals. But the drag out of town is free and easy, people are sensible because there’s not traffic grinding their gears.
So queue your favour album and cruise on.
Want to go further? Mid week flights out of the city are notoriously cheap. Even the well-worn path from Melbourne to Sydney sees declines in flight prices midweek.
But don’t stop at the big lights, find the rural airports you’d never bother to drive to and get there.
Want to explore the South Burnett, the wine and food region of South East Queensland? Fly straight to Kingaroy. The heart of the South Burnett region. What a dream.

Everyone’s out to have a good time and explore the most beautiful places they can find. Unfortunately, crowds can quickly ruin the sanctity and sanctuary of a place.
Relaxing beach escape? Not so relaxing when kids are throwing sand overhead and screaming to high heaven. Oh, and God forbid you don’t want to spend half an hour searching for a park.

There is an old French variant of the word ‘retreat’. It is retrait, which means to draw back.
Although its origins often refer to a military context, such as retreating from a fight, it has been popularised in the modern lexicon as a form of relaxation.
To draw back from the angst and demands of everyday life; even if just for a few days to give oneself permission to stop thinking and just be.
