Easter activity option #1

Lions Park Airlie Beach
There’s nothing like spending your Easter at a nice spacious park with the family for a day of fun-filled activities. Don’t forget to bring some Easter eggs to hide so you can send the kids on a hunt that will amuse them for hours. Perhaps you’d rather bring the cricket set down and smash the ball around the park with your kids all afternoon? Either way, come down to Lions Park Airlie Beach for an action-packed afternoon and some quality family time.

It doesn’t matter whether you head to Fat Frog Beach Cafe before or after your Easter egg hunt in Lions Park, just make sure this funky, friendly and affordable cafe is a part of your Easter Sunday plans. This wonderful cafe offers waterfront scenery, so you and the family can munch into a range of fresh breakfast options in style. Breakfast selections range from neatly stacked pancakes to a gourmet eggs Benedict  depending on what mood you’re in. If the kids haven’t had enough sugar already, they can indulge in a gluten-free rainbow cake or hot chocolate.

Easter activity option #2

Airlie Beach Lagoon 
Depending on the weather, the Airlie Beach Lagoon would make for the perfect family day out. Unlike the beach, this man-made relaxation hub will make sure you’re free from any potential stingers or rips while you enjoy Easter Sunday swimming safely. Surrounded by landscaped gardens and pristine views of the Whitsunday Islands, you can choose to relax on the shore with a book in hand or dive in and play with the kids.

After a day of swimming, running around and eating chocolate, the kids will be low on energy and ready to eat something a little more wholesome. Capers on the Esplanade, located within the Airlie Beach Hotel, provides a relaxed beachfront setting for you and your family to enjoy a night of alfresco style dining. We all know how fussy the kids can be when it comes to food, but Capers on the Esplanade has a versatile range of main meals including pizza, pasta, salad, seafood and burgers, as well as gluten free options so you and your children will be spoilt for choice this Easter Sunday.

Easter activity option #3

Is your family into their fishing? Be a good parent and take them for a day of fishing and fun this Easter. Being a town surrounded by marinas, Airlie Beach is full of rock walls that create the perfect (or hopefully not so perfect) hiding spot for barramundi, queenfish, grunter, trevally and the odd mackerel. We suggest you pick a spot near the Cannonvale Beach Foreshore Reserve that way if the fish aren’t biting, your kids will have somewhere to amuse themselves.

If you’ve spent the day waiting for a bite only to go home empty handed, Shipwrecked Bar and Grill will make sure you get your seafood fix. Perhaps you did hook into a few fish? It would still be a good idea to take the family for a night out at Shipwrecked, where you can share stories of the one that got away over some fresh local seafood. If you’re the indecisive type, be sure to choose a Shipwrecked platter that will let you taste everything, from fresh fish and prawns to oysters and scallops – plus more. For the kiddies who don’t always appreciate a delectable seafood meal, there is a range of $12 options that they can select from if they haven’t already overindulged in too many sweets throughout the day. Don’t forget to mention this LocalSearch article if you want a free wine during your sitting.
