Where to find Family fun this Easter
New South Wales
Griffith Easter Party
A multi-day celebration offering fun and festivities for the entire family during the Easter weekend. Arrive early and stock up with honey, oranges, biscotti and so much more at the special Easter Rotary produce and craft market on Easter Thursday. Good Friday kicks off with the Bacchus on the Lake Family Fun Run – one of the oldest fun runs in the country! If you’re not quite up for walking, running or putting your body on the line in the Enduro event, head to the Pioneer Park Museum for the Olden Day Fair. Kids and adults will love exploring the steam engines, blacksmith shops, horsemanship displays and more. On Saturday head to Banna Avenue for the Sidewalk Sale, children’s brunch, games in the park, and an amazing family fun day as the Griffith Regional Gallery spills into the park with hands-on creative activities for everyone! There is so much more to see and do across the weekend at Griffith, from the unmissable Easter egg hunt to the annual Griffith Vintage Festival.
Ipswich Art Gallery
Colour – See the World in a New Light is a fascinating exhibition that will capture the imagination of children and adults alike.

Closed Good Friday, but open every other day of the Easter weekend and through until June 14, 2020. Entry is FREE.
