Who’s ready for a holiday? 

Well, the Easter break is just around the corner. If you haven’t got around to planning your Easter holidays yet, now is the perfect time. Whether you plan on piling the kids in the car and heading off for a memorable family getaway or are dreaming of escaping to an idyllic winery, our round-up of the best ways to spend your Easter holidays has your Easter plans sorted.


A trip to Noosa never disappoints. The best thing about a Noosa trip is you can truly make it your own. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie or just need a well-deserved break, Noosa is the perfect location. 

There are so many fun activities to fill your Easter holidays in Noosa. Learn to surf, hike the beautiful (and easy-going) Hell’s Gates Hike in Noosa National Park or hire a stand up paddle board, kayak or even a jet ski and cruise through the Noosa River. When you’re ready to take it easy, treat yourself to a stroll through the iconic Hastings Street, and perhaps indulge in an ice cream. If you’re wanting to indulge in some seriously delicious Easter chocolate, be sure to pay a visit to the Noosa Chocolate Factory outlet in Noosaville.

Hamilton Island

Perhaps you fancy a trip further north? Why not visit Hamilton Island? You can head off to this marvellous location directly by plane. A trip to Hamilton Island will see you truly immersed into nature. You won’t be limited for choice with Hamilton’s countless attractions; including water sports, snorkeling, kid-friendly quad biking, off road adventure tours, mini-golf, art classes or tennis court hire. In between all the activities, kick back and relax on the powdery white sand of Catseye Beach.

Not keen on a beach trip? No problems! Immerse yourself in Australia’s mesmerising landscape and historic Indigenous culture with a trip to Uluru. There is so much to see and learn when you pay a visit to the heart of Australia. Follow the Aboriginal ancestors’ footsteps by embarking on one of six established walks around Uluru (most of which are wheelchair accessible). Witness the Field of Light art installation, walk the domes of Kata Tjuta or hike the stunning Kings Canyon. 

You’ll be spoilt with eclectic dining options in Uluru too. Perhaps indulge in the three course Sounds of Silence dinner. Here, you’ll sip on fine Australian wine and feast on bush tucker-inspired delicacies. 

To further immerse yourself in Australia’s Indigenous culture, learn about Indigenous art pieces, rock art and explore the rich history of Aboriginal music and dance.

Barossa Valley

Perhaps consider heading to the Barossa Valley – one of the world’s best wine regions. There are countless incredible wineries to sip your way through in this famous South Australia spot. But the Barossa Valley isn’t just famed for its wine. 

To complement your wine, indulge in the Barossa Valley Cheese Company experiences. Explore local art galleries, take in the rolling landscape by bike and even spend Easter at the Easter Sunday Family Fun Day (that’s right, you can bring your kids to the Barossa!).

Staying Close to Home? Day Trip It!

If you’ll be staying close to home, there are plenty of Easter events taking place that you can day trip to. A few good ones we’ve spotted include the Easter Eggstravaganza at Bribie Island’s  Sandstone Point Hotel, the Redcliffe Easter Markets, Easter High Tea at the W Brisbane and Queensland Museum’s Sea Monsters: Prehistoric Predators exhibition.
