The Easter holidays and long weekend are coming up and there are lots of events happening in Sydney to suit all ages and tastes.

For almost everyone, there is the beloved Royal Easter Show in Sydney Olympic Park, with a plethora of fun activities. There’s the  fun and thrilling amusement park rides such as The Beast, which flies 45 metres into the air at exhilarating speeds. There is also a host of carnival themed food stalls with treats ranging from giant turkey legs to fairy floss. 

For kids, there’s a farm section inside where they can interact with all types of animals and learn about them through the presentations provided by farmers. 

The showbags are a nice icing on the cake at the end of the day. Families can share their treasures by selecting a range of showbags, with various ones containing chocolate, toys and apparel, and more.

For those who prefer a more party themed activity, head to Untied Bar for a 4-day long weekend party. DJ’s, deals and bottomless brunches all available until 10pm every night. The Royal Oak Hotel in Double Bay will be doing something similar, with a DJ playing through all four nights as well as seafood specials and raffles for great prizes. 

The Salisbury Hotel in Stanmore will offer drink specials all weekend. Down south, head to Cronulla RSL. They’ll have live music and DJs across the long weekend, plus a special Easter menu featuring delicious seafood and a yummy Easter egg cheesecake.

If you want something a little more upmarket yet filled with storybook wonder, then you have to go down the rabbit hole and into the magical Mad Hatter Easter High Tea Buffet at Sir Stamford Hotel in Circular Quay. A delicious assortment of sweet and savoury treats will be served, along with tea, of course. But don’t be late for this important date as seats are very limited. 

Easter is, of course, a religious feast, in fact, the most important day in the Christian calendar. There will be services happening in churches everywhere and, if they are true to their faith, they will welcome all.

For those planning to attend a service on Sunday, the solemn mass at St Mary’s Cathedral will feature the full choir and music played on the beautiful pipe organ. In the historical, ornate setting of this monolithic building, it is a truly breathtaking experience.

St Stephen’s Uniting Church, just around the corner on Macquarie Street, prides itself on being inclusive. It too, is a magnificent, heritage, building. Easter service will be held at 10am, with glorious music and a relaxed, community vibe.
