Calling all travel bunnies, it’s time to pack your bags as you frolic your way into planning your Easter long weekend festivities!

Whether you’re heading to the Southern Highlands, or down to the South Coast, or creating your own ‘stay-cation’ at home, time spent with your loved ones makes for a super memorable Easter weekend.

Without further ado, let’s hatch a plan for your Easter long weekend!


1. Sun smart essentials

When you hear people say, “slip, slop, slap!” they really mean it. In fact, the sun’s rays are so powerful that they’re strong enough to penetrate through rain, hail or shine.

To start, if you’re heading to the water, we suggest slipping into a rashie to help protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays. You’ll find some great options from Myer, and Ozmosis

When it comes to slopping on some sunscreen, our favourites can be found at Priceline and Pharmacy on Petrie.

Now, it’s time to slap on a hat. We suggest wearing a cap from Rebel. If you’re wanting something chic, check out David Jones


2. A good read

Whether you’re on the road or want some time for yourself while everyone’s out exploring, reading material is an essential item in our stay-cay packing guide! 

Hop on down to Dymocks for all your magazine and newspaper needs. If you’re more into a good old-fashioned book, then take a trip to Robinsons Books to explore their vast collection.


3. Comfy clothes

We know how important it is to feel comfy on your getaway, and there are a bunch of options available at Canberra Centre to get your long weekend wardrobe all set. 

Whether you’re hunting for Easter eggs or going on an adventure, make sure you pack casual shoes! Footlocker have a great selection of shoes that are great for walking. Then, head to Athlete’s Foot for their kids’ shoes—perfect for your little explorers.


4. Games for entertainment

You can’t go wrong with a selection of games to entertain you and your fellow travellers this Easter long weekend.

You’re bound to have an egg-citing time with classic board games from Target. If you’re looking for something a little bit more active, why not pack the car with a footy, soccer ball or cricket set from Rebel?


5. Snacks for the road

No road trip would be complete without snacks for the car to keep rumbling tummies at bay. For our sweet tooths out there, look no further than Haigh’s. As a healthier snack alternative, check out Go Vita

We’re sure that these will be a popular choice on your road trip, so prepare to share these around!
