Weekend Staycation Essentials
Staycation Essentials for Your Easter Long Weekend
Published 29 March

Calling all travel bunnies, it’s time to pack your bags as you frolic your way into planning your Easter long weekend festivities!

Whether you’re heading to Whitsundays, down to Byron Bay, or creating your own ‘stay-cation’ at home, time spent with your loved ones makes for a super memorable Easter weekend.

Without further ado, let’s hatch a plan for your Easter long weekend!


1. Sun smart essentials


When you hear people say, “slip, slop, slap!” they really mean it. In fact, the sun’s rays are so powerful that they’re strong enough to penetrate through rain, hail or shine.

To start, if you’re heading to the water, we suggest slipping into a rashie to help protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays. You’ll find some great options from City Beach and Surf Dive 'N' Ski.
When it comes to slopping on some sunscreen, our favourite is Nivea Sunscreen from Priceline.
Now, it’s time to slap on a hat. We suggest wearing a cap from Bright Eyes. If you’re wanting something chic, check out Seed.

2. A good read


Whether you’re on the road or want some time for yourself while everyone’s out exploring, reading material is an essential item in our stay-cay packing guide!

Hop on down to Supanews or Nextra for all your magazine and newspaper needs. If you’re more into a good old-fashioned book, then take a trip to QBD Bookshop to explore their vast collection.

3. Comfy clothes


We know how important it is to feel comfy on your getaway, and there are a bunch of options available at Grand Central to get your long weekend wardrobe all set.

Whether you’re hunting for Easter eggs or going on an adventure, make sure you pack casual shoes! Mathers have a great selection of sandals that are great for walking. Then, head to Cotton On Kids for their kids’ shoes—perfect for your little explorers.

4. Games for entertainment


You can’t go wrong with a selection of games to entertain you and your fellow travellers this Easter long weekend.

You’re bound to have an egg-citing time with classic board games from Zing Pop. If you’re looking for something a little bit more active, why not pack the car with a footy, soccer ball or cricket set from Rebel Sport?

5. Snacks for the road


No road trip would be complete without snacks for the car to keep rumbling tummies at bay. For our sweet tooths out there, look no further than The Lolli Shop. As a healthier snack alternative, check out Central Health Foods.

We’re sure that these will be a popular choice on your road trip, so prepare to share these around!
