At Aussie World this Easter join in on the festivities! This place is scattered with thrill-rides and attractions to provide a family with a full day of fun. Aussie World is right in the middle of the Sunshine Coast and their Easter event has been specifically designed to make this Easter memorable for you and your children. They have incorporated a bonnet competition, a gigantic easter egg hunt throughout the entire park and an easter egg painting competition so you can really get creative. For the older children there is the obstacle egg race that is a challenging and competitive activity which makes for a great photo op. They have so many giveaways and the Easter Bunny himself will be making an appearance in his little waistcoat.

Before heading to Aussie World you absolutely must stop off at Chocolate Country with the kids. You’ll be the favourite parent for at least the next couple of hours. This is a family business where tourists and locals flock to taste some of their speciality chocolates and beverages. These guys are open on good Friday for your chocolate fix and they will be selling some of the most delicious chocolate hot cross buns in town. Kick off the day with a chocolate hot cross bun and a chocolate milkshake, your kids will love it. Although it may not be the most balanced breakfast it will give them the sugar rush they need to tackle the obstacle course at Aussie World.
Where: 192 Main Street, Montville, QLD
If you have kids full of sugar from Chocolate Country, here’s another active family option to kickstart your Easter holidays. Australia Zoo is turning it up so grab the kids, put on your hat and sunscreen and don’t forget the camera because there’s so much to see at Australia Zoo. There are pony rides, animals feedings and of course the Easter Bunny will be arriving in style. Bindi and The Jungle Girls will be performing live, and you can watch as the whole Irwin family feeds the crocs. There is also a meet and greet with Terri and Robert!
Starting time: 9am
Price: $59.00 per person or family ticket $172.00

So after this riot of an Easter Friday, complete your day at one of the most family-friendly restaurants on the Sunshine Coast, Montezuma’s. This is like a little piece of Mexico embedded into the heart of the Sunny Coast. The environment is very relaxed and they even offer colouring-in books for the kids to enjoy while you dine. The walls are colourful and the decor is extremely vibrant. The kids will love to feast their eyes on all that Montezuma’s has to offer. Send your Easter Friday out with a bang by eating some authentic Mexican nachos, enchiladas or even an ice-cream taco for dessert. Parents make sure you wash back your food with their delightfully delicious sangria.
Where: 97 Bulcock Street, Caloundra, QLD, 4551
