Whatever your belief system or faith orientation may be, broader society as a whole can rejoice in the coming of Easter with a number of guarantees: big family gatherings, even bigger gatherings of friends, too much chocolate, not nearly enough open stores, and a double-serving of weekends.

If weather permits, Easter this year will involve a lot of time spent outdoors roaming the sun-soaked palisades and bustling alleyways of your Sydney. Get involved with some of the festive long-weekend fun going on around you.

Have a Picnic

Have your Easter brunch al fresco in any of a number of wide, green spaces spotted around the city. Our picks include the Royal Botanic Gardens, Centennial Parklands, Cremorne Point Reserve and Cockatoo Island.



Go on an Easter Egg Hunt

Get yourself stocked up on easter eggs and scatter them around at said picnic. Grab a panini and some cold drip as your little ones scurry about in search of the coveted ‘Golden Egg’. Happy hunting!

Alternatively, you skip the hunt and go straight for The Holy Grail of Easter Eggs, courtesy of Gelato Messina.

If chocolate doesn’t appeal to your sweet tooth, you can hunt down clues in Escape Hunt, Sydney’s interactive, super-sleuthing detective game. Uncover mysteries and solve riddles as you clamour through the twists and turns of the historic Rocks district.

Go To A Museum

Check out the cream of the high school crop with the best major artworks from NSW’s graduating class of 2015. 12 Feb – 19 Apr 2015 at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.


Check out 30 years of lewd, rude, and downright iconic art with a retrospective of Australia’s favourite loud shirt’s purveyor, MAMBO. this exhibition spans the conception and evolution of Mambo’s visual identity with a collection of rarities from various artists, including long-time collaborator Reg Mombassa

Join The Parade

Every year, the Sydney Easter Parade sets out from Hyde Park to teach us the true meaning of Easter.Jump in the line and watch the spectacle unfold as the procession brings CBD traffic to a joyous and colourful standstill.

Have a Dance

Your local watering hole may unfortunately go into hibernation over the Easter break. Gladly, there are some venues keeping their doors open and bringing the ruckus to your Good Friday nights. Check out some of the live music that’s going down around the city: our picks are Bad Friday @ Vic on the Park, Enmore, Spice Cellar’s Easter Weekend Moving Fiesta, Gorillaz Sound System & more @ Ivy and the infamous Player Hater’s Ball @ Good God Small Club

    Hi all at Airtasker and fellow Airtaskers.

    I joined on 1 February 2014 and have completed 134 tasks for 117 reviews. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed performing these tasks with the flexibility it gives me for choosing what I want to do. The majority of these have been in the Sydney area.

    As I have now moved to Umina Beach on the Central Coast (80 kms north of Sydney) I would like to see some form of AT promotion in this area. This area has a population of 350,000 people and 100 + “suburbs”.(as advised by Gosford Council).

    I am sure many people in this area have the same need for “casual workers” as Sydneysiders do. The trick is to let them know about the availability of AIRTASKER.

    I’d be delighted to assist with any promotional work on the Central Coast — who am I — check the front page of the May 8tjh 2014 Sydney “North Shore Times”
