Stuck on what to do in Sydney over the Easter break? Here are some ideas to get you started...
- Learn about Australia’s native plants and animals at Western Sydney Parklands on Easter Saturday at their Easter in Nature event. Children aged between 4 and 10 can enjoy stories, nature-based games and participate in art projects. The park’s educators will lead the children along nature trails around the park giving the little ones a chance to connect with nature in creative ways. The program runs for an hour and a small fee applies. For more details visit > Easter in Nature event.
- If you’re wanting an Easter show experience but hesitant to commit to the Royal Easter Show, the Sydney Family Show at The Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park is a fun option for littler ones. Enjoy rides, sideshow games, show bags, a reptile show, an animal nursery, food trucks, live stage shows and more. The event runs from 6 - 23 April. For more details visit > Sydney Family Show.
- Looking for a night-time experience? Head to Liverpool Most Blessed Nights Food Markets where the mall will be transformed into a bustling bazaar lined with tantalising sweet and savoury delicacies in celebration of Ramadan, Easter, Orthodox Easter and Passover. The event runs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings from 6pm and is on until 23rd April. For more information visit > Most Blessed Nights Food Markets.
- Enjoy the Autumn evenings and connect with the community at Ramadan Nights Lakemba. With over 70 food stalls the event is described as a “vibrant, global food bazaar” and starts at dusk until every night from 21 March-20 April. For more information visit - Ramadan Nights Lakemba.
- Looking for an indoor option that’s also educational? The Australian Museum is running a shark exhibition until 25 April. The exhibition offers a 360 degree immersive experience and includes 10 life-sized shark models. This is a ticketed exhibition but children under 3 are free. You can also enjoy general admission to the museum for free. For more details visit > Shark Exhibition at the Australian Museum.
- If you'd rather be out about in nature head to The Australian Botanic Garden in Mount Annan. With 416 hectares of bushland, grassland and gardens there’s lots of space to explore. Bring a bike to use on the bike paths or wander the grounds in search of wildlife. There’s a playground on site as well as a cafe, and plenty of spots for a picnic lunch. Entry to the gardens is free! For more details visit > Australian Botanic Garden.
- If you’re looking for lots of exciting activities under one roof, Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq is worth a visit! There’s dodgem cars, a carousel, crazy shakes or have a go at ten pin bowling. Located in Alexandria and Penrith. For more details visit - Archie Brothers.
