Next Week … Are you ready for a double shot of Weekender? Yep, we’re on Saturday AND Sunday AGAIN!

Saturday…Eureka! Mike’s making scientific discoveries about nuclear medicine; Mel’s Wild About Whales and finds the best places to watch them plus stays in a cosy beach cabin; Pete’s behind the wheel of a race car and gets the thrill of his life when he signs up for a Formula Ford Race Team Experience; Jason & Beck go the extra mile for scrumptious food and take a trip to Bowral; and Erica checks out the action in Canberra’s New Acton with her HOTDEAL.

Sunday…Things get spooky for Mike when he spends the night in Australia’s most haunted house; Rose discovers that airbrushing isn’t just for cars; Daniel slaps on his akubra and becomes a jackaroo for the weekend; Sally tries out two coastal lunch spots that’ll really float your boat; and Erica shows you how to take the whole family on a beach holiday and save 380 bucks with this HOTDEAL.
