So the time has come to celebrate all thing chocolate, and I’m not mad about it. Easter is one of my favourite times of the year, we get an extra, extra-long weekend, we can eat chocolate for breakfast and not be judged by our peers and it’s the perfect time to hang with your tribe and soak up the Easter vibes.
There is also a lot happening Australia wide and if none of those ideas tickle your fancy then why not make your own fun and enjoy your time off to the fullest! Here are my top picks for what to do this Easter break.
We’re always in a rush to get overseas and explore the world but we often forget that some of the most amazing places to eat, see and explore are right here in our very own backyard. Why not book a cheeky flight to your neighbouring state or even further and relax, rejuvenate or dance the night away in a new city? There are still some cheap flights available for the Easter weekend so grab your buddies and head to the Jetstar website
to find a deal you just can’t say no to!
Escape the City and Explore
The Easter break is the perfect time to head out of the city and explore our vast land, there are plenty of road trips you can do overnight and for relatively cheap if you are able to do your research. Motels or accommodation at the local pubs where you are going are a great way to save cash and be immersed in the local scene for a night or two. Remember though, Easter is a busy time for travellers so make sure you book in advance to avoid missing out on your cheap accommodation. Even with a chocolate bunny on hand you don’t want to be sleeping in the car!
Rough it for a night or two and camp
As much as I hate to admit it the warmer days and balmy evenings will soon become a thing of the past but while it’s still Autumn and we are experiencing warmer days and nights then usual there is no time like the Easter weekend to get your cork hat out, pitch a tent, build a fire and camp underneath the stars. This really isn’t something you should wing though, so make sure you are prepared with everything you will need to spend a night or two outside in the wilderness. Camping is a lot of fun and if you don’t have a friend who plays a guitar then find one because what is the point of toasting marshmallows without some sick cords being played around a campfire (just saying, OK this might be my dream and not yours but you know where I’m going with this).
See what’s hot in your city
If your ideal Easter weekend is Netflix and chilling around your city, then you are in luck because there are some EPIC events taking place Australia wide so why not plan a little adventure or two in your home town? Sydney has the Easter show, Melbourne has the Comedy Festival, Adelaide has Cirque Africa 2.0 and if I haven’t mentioned your city then join up to The Urban List
and see what’s happening around your hood this Easter long weekend. Go on hop to it (see what I did there…)
