I was planning on going to an awesome medieval camping event in Sydney over the Easter weekend, but other shit has come up to stop that.
So now I find myself with 3 days of extra leave, Wed 12/4 to Tues 18/4. My wife and I would like to take a short break and escape the city for a few days, but have no idea where.
We are thinking of leaving after I finish work on Tuesday, driving to wherever and staying until Saturday morning.
We have a 1 year old bub, so have to factor him into any activities. That being said, we like a bit of gentle bushwalking with the three of us, historical towns, shopping (but not too much) and I am more into food than she is. Bub sleeps in bed with us, so a queen bed room would suit. Unfortunately camping is out as a result.
If we can find something where he can be watched/entertained for a day so we can actually interact as a couple, that would be awesome.
Are there any genuine “last minute” accommodation websites - like, we don’t care where we go as long as it is within about 3 hours drive of the northern suburbs.
If not, can anyone suggest somewhere affordable for a few nights? I have been thinking Walhalla, King Valley, High Country, Bendigo/Ballarat/Daylesford? I grew up in Sydney, so I have no idea where might be good in Vic.
