Looking for activities for the kids over the Easter break? Then look no further than your local shopping centre. There’s tons of fun and festivities around the Coast this year.
Westfield Helensvale will have the Easter Bunny bouncing around the mall and meeting the kids from Mon 25 till Thurs 28 and Easter Saturday, from 11-2. After Easter Monday, the Animal Farm filled with the Easter Bunny’s furry friends will also be available for kids from Tue 2 till Fri 5 of April.
Harbour Town will be home to cute, cuddly and crawling critters these school holidays with the launch of Wildlife on Wheels. Kids are being called upon to put on their ‘Wildlife Rangers’ hats in the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation Rangers and their Australian fauna educational show, from Monday April 8th until Friday April 12th at 11am and 1.30pm outside 2chillies. Along with the show, visitors are invited to have their photograph taken with their favourite furry friend for only $10 with all proceeds donated to the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation.
Southport’s very own Australia Fair will see the Easter Bunny roaming around the centre, as he hands out chocolate eggs to the kids (and adults if you’re lucky). Flower pot making and an Ultimate Wii Challenge, for the older kids and young at heart, will also be outside Hungry Jacks.
Ashmore City Shopping Centre has a magical Easter experience in store. The Easter Bunny and his helper will be distributing eggs, bunny ears, and stickers from 26 till 28 March from 10-2. Be sure to find him hopping around the centre, giving cheeky treats for the kids.
Broadbeach Mall will be entertaining locals with its usual music and face-painting activities; creating a fun day out for the whole family over the Easter weekend. Entertainment will be happening in the main under-cover complex, opposite Mama Romas restaurant. Located along Kurrawa Beach, an Aussie Easter can be a treat – as long as the chocolate doesn’t melt in the autumn heat.
