What’s open Easter long weekend 2016?

Trying to find somewhere to go over the Easter long weekend in Sydney? We’ve got you covered.

There’s a special kind of anticipation with a four-day weekend. To be honest, it’s better than Christmas – lots more chocolate and a lot less present buying for distant family members you don’t like very much, anyway.

Sure, most people are going away over the Easter long weekend, but if you’re staying in Sydney, it’s a special, special place. Why? Less people = less time waiting at the bar. Winning!

And hey, if your favourite place does happen to be closed this weekend, quit grumbling about it and discover somewhere new. Everyone deserves a holiday.
