Weekend is a vibrant and engaging lifestyle section that reflects the unique needs and interests of dynamic regional consumers. Published every Saturday in 14 of APN ARM's leading regional newspapers, this entertaining read provides targeted coverage across six key segments – local features, travel, entertainment, leisure, at-home dining and gardening. Weekend explores a rich tapestry of local life relevant to its readers, and offers advertisers unrivalled connections to a lucrative regional audience.

Weekend consistently contains five key segments:

• Cover Story – an interesting read from the local area

• Explore – travel section featuring first-person accounts of aspirational destinations, as well as local gems

• Easy Eating - already carried prominently during the week, these pages continue to offer recipes, cooking tips, wine reviews and celebrity chef profiles

• Screen Life - keeps readers in-touch with Hollywood at home via movie reviews, cinema guides and film insights

• Relax - a recreational read covering music, books, DVDs and shows

• In My Garden – focused on providing general advice on gardening and tips to get the most out of your patch. Also features the latest trends, equipment and fertilizers.

Weekend’s contemporary design and targeted content combine to create a compelling environment for advertisers to position their brands – the first of its kind dedicated to regional Australia.
