Tips & Guides
15th Mar 2021

The Easter school holidays are just around the corner, so we have created a list of things you can do with your family to help you avoid the shouts of ‘we’re bored!’ all day long.

From caravan trips and Easter egg hunts, to baking hot cross buns and discovering new playgrounds, there is something for everyone.

Take a road trip somewhere new

The school holidays are a perfect time to jump in the car, hook up the RV and explore somewhere new! If it’s a two-week long trip, or a weekender, the kids will have a ball exploring a new area, a new playground or just making the most of activities they might not be able to do at home. Just a reminder, caravan parks do tend to book up over holidays, so it might be worth hitting the back tracks and heading to a free camp. Check out our blog for destination inspiration.

Get into the kitchen

Whether you’re on the road or at home, Easter is a great excuse to get into the kitchen with your kids and create some homemade goodness. From hot cross buns or carrot cakes, to chocolatey desserts, your kids will have a ball bonding over baking. If you’re on the road, why not take some treats along to your neighbours?

Check out a new activity in your area.

Make the most of indoor activities

The weather during the Easter school holidays can be unpredictable, which makes it a good time to make the most of indoor activities in your state. From galleries and indoor playground to museums and escape rooms, there are so many great activities to explore. For something educational, check out the museums in your state. If you’re into art, your local gallery may have some fun activities for kids. There are also some great indoor playgrounds right across Australia.

Plan an Easter egg hunt

One of the best things about Easter are the treats! Both little and big kids will enjoy hunting around the backyard to find chocolate eggs. Get teenage children involved by having them help plan the hunt. If you’re staying in a caravan park over Easter, it might be fun to work with the other campers to create a giant egg hunt for all the kids.
