Easter Fun At Your Local!

The Easter Bunny is about to come hopping through our region with both children and chocolate-loving adults excited for his arrival.

To celebrate the Easter weekend, two of our favourite family-friendly locals are putting on special events which are sure to entertain the kids while giving the parents time to relax with a nice cool bevvy.

Reef Gateway Hotel has created a special event – the Easter Family Fun Weekend which is due to take place on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 March.

There will be free face-painting on Saturday from 11.30am and live music from 6pm that evening.

On Sunday kids eat free from 12pm, terms and conditions apply.

All-day dining is available throughout the weekend but please note: the venue will be closed on Easter Friday.

Bring the family to The Reef for a weekend of eating, face-painting and live music!

Meanwhile at the Jubilee Tavern there is more fun to be had over the Easter long weekend.

Face-painting will take place on Sunday from 12pm-3pm and the kids colouring competition will be drawn at 3pm.

The venue will be closed on good Friday but will re-open Saturday and Sunday for all day dining with kids eat free for Sunday lunch (terms and conditions apply).

Ellie Goulding, Senior Operations Manager Mackay and Whitsundays said she is really excited about Easter and is looking forward to seeing the community come along to enjoy the free activities at both venues.
