Cheap weekend activities really are possible. You don’t have to miss out on fun with friends when you’re not flash with cash.

Boozing on a budget

You can still enjoy a few drinks without having to splash too much cash.

  • Head to Ashfield RSL or Club Burwood RSL and you can save the cab fare home by catching the free courtesy bus instead.
