Where are the best places to travel on Easter holiday packages?
Easter coincides with another major season in the Barossa Valley – grape harvesting season. Visitors holidaying on Easter packages in the Barossa can see the grapes being handpicked in the vineyards before being made into wine. The vibrant autumn colours across the region are another benefit to visiting the Barossa on Easter accommodation and flight packages. Daytime temperatures start to have that crisp – but still pleasant – autumn feel, so you can enjoy the colourful views of the vineyards while tasting the local wines. Be sure to also check the dates for the Barossa Vintage Festival when booking your Easter holiday packages. The biennial event is held every other autumn and sometimes coincides with Easter.
Have a look at Easter hotels and accommodation in Sydney to attend the popular Sydney Royal Easter Show. The event is held at the Sydney Showground for two weeks around Easter time and celebrates the culture of rural Australia. There are agricultural shows, plus rides and a great selection of food trucks. Along with the festival, Sydney is teeming with fun things to do during the Easter period. Take in the sights around Sydney Harbour, get a delicious Easter dinner from one of Sydney’s world-class restaurants, watch the Sydney Easter Parade, and participate in the Great Centennial Park Easter Egg Hunt if you’re travelling on Easter packages with kids.
Great Ocean Road
The Rip Curl Pro on Bells Beach is the world’s longest-running surf competition, and it’s held over Easter weekend each year. Book Easter holiday packages with flights into Melbourne to attend the event. Outside of the Rip Curl Pro, Easter is an excellent time to visit Great Ocean Road. The weather is still nice, and there are fewer tourists compared to the busy summer season. Hire a car with Webjet after booking your Easter accommodation and flight packages, and plan a road trip along the scenic coastal road. Popular stops after Bells Beach include Great Otway National Park, the Twelve Apostles, and Loch Ard Gorge.
The Red Centre gets hot during the summer and early autumn, but things start to cool down around Easter time. The Alice Springs area is teeming with fun things to do while holidaying on Easter packages. See beautiful spots in the West MacDonnell Ranges like Ormiston Gorge and Simpsons Gap, visit the Olive Pink Botanic Garden, and walk up ANZAC Hill. Mountain bike enthusiasts can also participate in CARR Easter in the Alice – a three-day race around the region. Travellers can make the most of good deals on Easter hotels and accommodation around Alice Springs before the peak season begins.
Head to New Zealand for a few days with Easter accommodation and flight packages to Auckland. The city hosts its own Royal Easter Show each year. Visitors holidaying on Easter packages can enjoy agricultural shows, performances by the Zirka Circus, carnival rides, and fireworks. There are plenty of things to do outside the festival as well. Take in the famous sights around Auckland like the Sky Tower, Mount Eden, and Auckland Domain and Wintergardens. The Easter period is also a nice time to see the autumn colours at the Waiheke Island vineyards.
The South Island of New Zealand bursts with colour in autumn. Take in the colourful nature of the region by booking Easter holiday packages to the Canterbury region. Book flights into Christchurch and hire a car through Webjet, then head out to explore the national parks and rugged coastline of Canterbury. Top places to visit include Aoraki Mount Cook in the Southern Alps, Lake Tekapo, and the Banks Peninsula. Since Easter falls after the busy summer period, you can also find great prices on Easter hotels and accommodation in Canterbury.
Head off the beaten path on Easter weekend by booking Easter holiday packages to Norfolk Island. This small Aussie island is located about two and a half hours by plane from both Sydney and Brisbane. Although Norfolk Island is technically part of Australia, it was self-governing for many years and has a unique Polynesian flair. The island is also covered in beautiful, untouched nature that you can enjoy to the fullest while holidaying on Easter packages. Some of the top things to do on Norfolk Island include snorkelling at Emily Bay Lagoon, hiking to the top of Mount Pitt, and visiting the Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Area.
