What do you think about the new Labour Day long weekend in Oc­to­ber and what did you do?

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

Sam Dine, Can­non­vale: I went to the Girls Night In cock­tail event to help raise funds for breast can­cer re­search. It was a fan­tas­tic night and I just re­laxed for the rest of the long weekend. Wim Van der Pluym, Hamil­ton Is­land: I went sail­ing around the Whit­sun­day is­lands on my boat for the long weekend to en­ter­tain friends who were vis­it­ing from Mel­bourne. We went fish­ing and snorkelling, it was great. Jon Lewis, Air­lie Beach: I went to Mis­sion Beach with friends and went sky div­ing for the first time and white wa­ter raft­ing. Sky div­ing was the best thing I have ever done and it was a great way to spend the long weekend. He­len Hol­land, Ju­bilee Pocket: I spent the weekend re­lax­ing and watch­ing the NRL grand fi­nal. My hus­band and I are re­tired so the pub­lic hol­i­day didn't mean much to us but it was a good ex­cuse to get friends over. Olivia Tet­zlaff, Air­lie Beach: I spent the long weekend in Townsville but in hind­sight it was very quiet con­sid­er­ing there was a pub­lic hol­i­day. I just went to the beach and went shop­ping for two days. Mark Rees, Can­non­vale: I watched the Roost­ers win the NRL grand fi­nal and I was born in Bondi so it was a great game to watch. I think for foot­ball sup­port­ers who drink, the Labour Day long weekend was per­fect tim­ing. David Dav­i­son, Wood­wark: I took the kids out for a day of tub­ing at the dam and went fish­ing on the Mon­day. I also did a bit of gar­den­ing so it was a fan­tas­tic long weekend.
