This film looks at some of the ways in which Australians typically spend their weekend leisure time in the 1960s.

It includes scenes of family outings to the beach, golf, sailing, bushwalking, horseraces, fishing, go-cart races and mowing the lawn, as well as showing young people at Luna Park.

This short excerpt includes adults enjoying an informal evening barbecue and dancing. A typically Australian moment is the passing of the tomato sauce bottle around the table.
