Go on a coastal walk

With the weather looking clear and sunny for the next couple of days, we’re in luck for being able to sock up some rays! Enjoy a beautiful coastal walk or be more adventurous and go exploring spectacular National Parks. What makes coastal walks a go-to long weekend activity is that you can go swimming at beaches if you come across them for a pit-stop. What better way to spend Easter than to de-stress and relax with a stunning view.

Rose Bay to Watsons Bay
Royal National Park Coast Track
Bondi to Bronte Walk


Go out!

 As a young adult during Easter, it may seem like there’s nothing to do besides stay at home since most shops are closed. Fear not! There are a bunch of places still open over the long weekend. If sipping on cocktails is your kind of thing, head to The Royal Hotel in Leichardt for some sweet chocolatey cocktails all weekend if you’re in Sydney. For Melbourners, delicious food is only a corner away at Franks or Paper Fish. Wherever you are, check online and you’ll be sure to find a place open, ready for all your needs.
