At FGD, that means an excuse to each chocolate (maybe even for the ever-health conscious Nora) and get into the jovial spirit (a Bunny onesie, perhaps?).
It also means time off for the long weekend, and time spent with family.
For those spending time with the kids over the Easter break, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best activities going in Sydney to help you fill your weekend. That’s right – the family lawyers in Double bay have you covered!
Sydney Royal Easter Show
23 March – 3 April
This one’s a no brainer, Sydney’s best of the best in livestock and agriculture put on a damn good show over Easter. The fruit/veg display in the Woolworths stand is always good, as are the puppies and baby animals.
Sydney Family Show
24 March – 2 April
If you can’t make it along to the Easter show or just prefer something a bit more low-key, pay a visit to the Sydney Family Show in Moore Park. Entry is free, and they have rides, show bags, games and animals.
The Great Centennial Park Egg Hunt
31 March to 1 April
Follow the trail map, complete the activities and be rewarded with chocolate – sounds pretty straight forward to me!
Sydney Easter Parade
If you’re looking for something more traditional, you can’t go past the Sydney Easter Parade. Giant inflatables, animal costumes, marching band, stilt-walkers and many creative and colourful displays feature in the parade as they celebrate the resurrection of Christ.
Talk to the animals
Sydney has a range of animal- centric attractions open over Easter. You could hang out with Mali and his Australian sea-lion pals at Taronga Zoo, meet Dugongs Wuru and Pig at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, smile at Rocky the saltwater crocodile at Wildlife Sydney Zoo or pat the fluffy koalas at Featherdale Wildlife Park.
If you’re watching your wallet over the weekend, you can take advantage of Sydney’s free and fun offerings. Weather permitting, you might fancy a stroll around Centennial Park, or along the Bondi to Bronte coast. The South Head Heritage train near Watsons Bay is also a lovely walk.
If the rain decides to pay us a visit (it is Sydney after all, so who knows), you could pop into the Art Gallery of NSW or the Museum of Contemporary Art, which both offer free entry.
Whatever you decide to do this Easter, enjoy the time off and spend it in a way that makes you happy – whether that’s connecting with your religion, your family, your friends or your inner self.
Happy Easter from all of us at FGD Sydney!
