Reading Time: 3 minutes

Every week we share our Weekend Planner so that you never again have to say “I don’t know what do to this weekend”. Or “what do I do with the kids ?”. So whether you feel like getting out of the house for an adventure. Or sitting in front of the big screen with a choc-top. Maybe even kicking back on the couch all weekend – we’ve got the perfect ideas.

Red Frogs annual Leavers Week mission

Red Frogs Volunteer Applications Closing Soon

Red Frogs annual Leavers Week mission is running from 19th –  25th November!

Volunteering as a Frogger is an awesome opportunity for you to connect with others who have a like-minded passion for the next generation and safeguard the school leavers of 2022 as they celebrate the end of school. From cooking pancakes and sausage sizzles, to walking leavers home in the early hours of the morning, you can guarantee you will leave the week knowing that you have made a difference in the life of someone else. Volunteer applications close this Sunday 6th November at 9:59 PM. Sign up here.

Bayswater Twilight Markets

Big Don's smoked meats

Friday 4th November, from 5 pm, Bert Wright Park.

Attention carnivores, this is a public service announcement to let you know that Big Don’s Smoked Meats is heading to the Bayswater Twilight Markets. Now, if you haven’t heard of or seen pics of Big Don’s Smoked Meats, prepare yourself. When I read that Big Don’s would be at the markets, I let out an audible “oooooh” because these look like the most tantalizing display of briskets, tacos and sausages I’ve ever seen. Of course, there are lots of other food and dessert options to help you wash that all down, amongst a variety of stalls for veggos and other diets. You can also expect lots of family-friendly entertainment from 5 pm, but I’d recommend getting down early before Big Don’s sells out.

Hot Hula

Saturday 5th November, 10 am, Grass area in front of Portofinos, Quinns Road

This Polynesian dance workout is inspired by the moves from the South Pacific. It’s a low impact, 60 minute session that is set to traditional drumbeats and infused with modern hip-hop tracks that are sure to get you smiling with your hips. Please wear appropriate clothing, apply sunscreen and bring along a bottle of water for hydration. We will meet on the grassed area in front of Portofinos Restaurant. Secure your ticket before they sell out.

Cockburn Live

5th – 13th November, Under the big tent, Cockburn Central

Cockburn live is a fringe style event fit for the whole family! Kicking off this weekend and running through until next weekend you’re sure to find a show that will fit your family. Some of the upcoming highlights for this weekend include Monski Mouse’s Baby Disco, Werk It: An Aerobics Oz Style comedy circus and Mr SnotBottom’s Stinky Silly Show. Check out the full program and purchase tickets here.


Tune in during Drive each Friday during the 3 pm or 5 pm hour for more ideas on how to spend your time over the weekend! Plus as always the Sonshine Diary also has plenty of other options for your weekend plans and we hope you have a wonderful and safe weekend.
