Weekend getaway not such a distant dream

MAKE YOUR GETAWAY MEMORABLE… The historic stone stables at Byronsvale Vineyard & Accommodation just out of Bendigo offers the perfect place to take a long weekend or mid-week break. Booking is still possible with their special value voucher for The Adviser readers. Photo: Geoff Adams.

IF lockdown has taught us anything, it’s that we often want something more when we know we can’t have it.

Taking to the road and getting out of the house, out of your town or even heading abroad is something we’ll all have a new appreciation for.

With international travel off limits, more people have been chasing minibreaks in their own backyards, with Airbnb reporting domestic bookings in Victoria for June were up 34 percent on last year.

The Byronsvale Vineyard & Accommodation near Bendigo is one such five-star luxury getaway in Central Victoria that offers the perfect weekend away.

Yet while you may not be able to plan that time away in these uncertain times, Byronsvale is offering a special three-day package gift voucher, to use for yourself or someone close to you. It means you can secure your long weekend away at great value, then pencil in the dates later.

The Byronsvale historic stone stables have been renovated and restored and are ready to welcome visitors once travel restrictions ease. The estate is also home to a fine drop: its gold medal winning 2017 Estate shiraz.
