On the hunt for ways to entertain the family this long weekend? Here’s 7 egg-cellent ideas you’re sure to enjoy!
- Get cracking!
It wouldn’t be Easter without an Easter egg hunt. Combine the search with Mini Golf at Elizabeth Quay
from 10am-11am on Easter Saturday, and if that hasn’t tired you out, head up to Cathedral Square
for a two-hour search from 11am-1pm – the Square is decorated with illuminated eggs all over the Easter period.
- Hidden treasures
Popular theme park Adventure World will be holding its regular Good Friday event
, with special winning tokens hidden all over venue. Find them and trade them in for prizes. And, of course, you can break up your search with all the regular rides for which the park has become so well-loved.
- Beat the clock and solve a mystery
Escape rooms are interactive puzzle areas where families or teams pit their wits to track down clues and unravel mysteries, all before time runs out. Fremantle’s Escape Hunt
has three scenarios to crack – The Lost Treasure of Captain Black Jack, Poisoning in the Café, and Escape from the Mine.
- Movies under the stars
There’s a whole range of open-air cinemas screening everything from classics to new releases over the Easter period. The American Express Openair Cinema
has a trio of movies from Good Friday to Easter Day (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
, and Black Panther
), while Moonlight Cinema
will screen Black Panther
, Game Night
and Isle of Dogs
. On Easter Saturday Northbridge Piazza
will be hosting a free screening of the animated Nut Job
, and Kingsley’s Galaxy Drive-In
will be rolling out a program of new releases.
- Street theatre
The Fremantle International Street Arts Festival
celebrates 20 years with a selection of live performances that cover everything from dance to acrobatics, comedy and puppetry. With a selection so broad, you can be confident there’ll be something to put a smile on your face, no matter your preference. The Festival runs across the whole of the long weekend.
- Park life
Want to keep the kids happy and be absolutely sure that they’ll sleep like logs at the end of the day? Whiteman Park
has you covered. The Easter long weekend is the perfect opportunity to make a day of it, and even then you’ll probably not cover everything here – there’s a wildlife park, woodland reserve, train and tram rides, bush walks, museums, cycle paths… makes you tired just reading about it.
- A taste of Europe
Use the long weekend to get yourself a dose of culture, at the Alliance Francaise French Film Festival
. Featuring dramas to documentaries and everything in between, the festival’s offering includes several films that are getting their first-ever Australian showings. And if you feel like pushing your long weekend out a little longer (and why not?), catch the festival’s Closing Night premiere, the comedy 50 is the new 30
