No need to hunt: we’ve pulled together Easter long weekend’s most egg-citing events so that you can celebrate the holiday #intercontinental style.

Sanctuary Cove’s Annual Easter Hunt

Located only footsteps away in Marina Village, Sanctuary Cove’s annual Easter Eggstravaganza is the perfect place to take some-bunny special. Kids will be in paradise thanks to giant inflatables, bungy trampolines, pony rides, baby animal farms, craft workshops and a visit from the Easter Bunny himself.

Enjoy family fun with a scenic train ride around The Marina Village, followed by an Easter egg hunt and topped off by an Easter buffet at InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.

Try the Nutella Bomba at Gemelli

Gemelli’s Nutella Bomba is trending on all dessert blogs across the Gold Coast – and for good reason. This Italian dessert is encrusted in Sicilian pastry, filled with Nutella, deep-fried, dusted with cinnamon and served with gelato: welcome the ultimate Easter chocolate treat (and the perfect excuse to indulge!)

Bleach Festival

The Gold Coast’s signature arts and culture festival, Bleach Festival, hits Currumbin shores from 29 March to 15 April – just in time for Easter long weekend.  Immerse the family in cutting edge music, circus, theatre, dance, cabaret and visual art while soaking up the idyllic beach location. This year, exhibitions will be inspired by the relationship between sport and art, fitting as Commonwealth Games 2018 will be ‘running’ at the same time. 

NightQuarter’s Easter-Inspired Markets

Visit NightQuarter Markets on Friday or Saturday of Easter long-weekend for a sugar-fuelled dining adventure like no other as the food trucks transform with Easter-themed desserts including chocolate-egg donuts and candy-infused shakes. Immerse in child-like festivity with the kid’s carnival, rides and country music.  

Insider Tip: look out for the Rainbow Unicorn Ice Cream Sandwich while you’re at the markets – it’s one you will want to Instagram!
