We can’t get enough of Easter here at Style. From the crisp and dewy mornings that turn into warm days to spending precious time with friends and family, it truly is a special time of year. Oh, and let’s not forget the extra days we get off work to relax and recharge! The best way to spend an Easter long weekend is (obviously) eating your weight in delicious food and attending the hottest events around town. So, to help you get the most out of your Easter long weekend, we’ve rounded up our pick of the events worth checking out.

Brisbane Quarter

In case you missed it, one of our favourite luxury retail and dining precincts, Brisbane Quarter, is celebrating Easter in the best way possible – with lots of free food! Run, don’t walk because from April 16-18, Brisbane Quarter will be serving up 200 free hot cross buns between 8am-10am! And, exclusively on April 18, The Simple Life Café will be handing out 100 free chocolate Easter bunnies in the morning too. The deliciousness doesn’t stop there though. For the entire month, W Brisbane will be hosting their scrumptious High Tea of Easter, and The Simple Life Café has an awesome coffee and scone deal going.

Victoria Park

While tickets are sold out for Victoria Park’s Easter Saturday and Sunday breakfast and lunch and Easter Eggstravaganza activities, you can still visit on Good Friday and Easter Monday!

What’s better than overloading on chocolate over Easter? Overloading on gin, of course! If you want to try out one of 200 craft gins, Covent Garden is the place to hang over the long weekend. Oh, and if you are vegan or have any food intolerances to gluten or dairy, Covent Garden’s menu can cater to you.
