Summer has well and truly arrived, and while we may be back at work, warm weekends are perfect for enjoying the great outdoors.  Whether it's at the beach or your local park, there truly is nothing better than rolling out a rug, gathering with your best pals and snacking the afternoon away. Add a couple of these non-alcoholic bevvies and you're in for the biggest treat of all (and don't forget to slap on the sunscreen, too!)

If your alfresco dining gear could do with an upgrade, we've got you covered. From romantic picnic baskets to fun outdoor games, here are our favourite picnic accessories in Australia that we'll be adding to our shopping cart this season.
