What is open Easter weekend in Brisbane 2019?

Easter opening hours for all Brisbane's best shops, restaurants, bars and cafes.

Four days. Repeat. Four days. That's how much time you have off from work / school / responsibility (strike out whichever is not required) this Easter break. What WILL you get up to in that time?

We have a few ideas.

While your 9-5 may be on break, there are plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and experiences that are staying open for the Easter long weekend. So you can catch up with old friends, browse the racks or go out and explore. What you get up to is up to you.
