Easter is one of our favourite times of the year. Quality time with family and a chance to take a breath after a busy first term. Before we get into the events that are on this weekend here are a few things to remember. For those having a visit from the Easter Bunny, he generally comes on Saturday night while the kids are asleep and they wake up to their eggs on Sunday morning. MOST shops are shut (including the major grocery stores) on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.


The Royal Sydney Easter Show. From Thursday 6 April to Monday 17 April at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.

The Sydney Royal Easter Show is Australia’s largest annual event, attracting close to 900,000 people each year. It is a celebration of Australian culture, from our rural traditions to our modern day lifestyles, providing unique experiences for everyone. Each year the country and city join together to enjoy agricultural competitions, animal experiences, entertainment, carnival fun, shopping and much more.  Find out more here.
