Ok after reading a post wher a brief comment was made on how much this family missed their mini weekend breaks to Scotland, Ireland etc, it made me think that a lot of people probably don't know how much of SA is easily accessible for a weekend break. After all the Vic border is only a 4ish hour drive away.
So please post where you've been for a mini break here. Cut and paste this format.

There is so much here in SA within 4 hours drive, after all the locals will drive further sometimes to get to their shacks for the weekend. There is also a booklet called SA shorts published by the SAtravel commission annually I think detailing campsites, cabins B&Bs etc that do deals for short breaks. Your travel agent may have one.
