If you’ve got young kids or grandkids this weekend and are struggling to think of things to do with them, struggle no more. Hutton & Hutton have done the research for you and found some egg-cellent Brisbane-based activities for the whole family.
We’d better hop to it then!
April 19 (Good Friday)
VIRTUAL REALITY BUNNY BATTLE
This integrated VR experience is a fantastic activity for kids of all ages. Held on the stage of Queen Street Mall, kids will have the opportunity to battle an opponent virtually by shooting eggs at them.
Sessions are at 10.00am and 2.00pm, so make sure to get down a little early so the kids aren’t waiting long!

AUGMENTED REALITY BUNNY HUNT
Gone are the days of the traditional Easter egg hunt. The kids can now use technology to participate in a citywide egg hunt. Starting at the stage in Queen Street Mall, the kids will colour in Mr Bunny on a piece of paper and bring him to life through AR technology. They can then help him find the missing eggs with eight scan-enabled markers around the city.
Pack your walking shoes, this one sounds egg-hausting!

April 20 (Easter Saturday)
MORNING TEA AT THE SHINGLE INN
Head into town hall for a delicious morning tea of hot cross buns! If the kids aren’t in the mood for raisins, they can ask for a chocolate hot cross bun. Every bun is served with a tea or coffee for only $7.90.

AUGMENTED REALITY COLOURING
Kids can watch their drawings come to life with the help of WEAVER AR technology. Sessions are at 10.00am and 2.00pm at the stage in Queen Street Mall.
Drawings that come to life?! Now that’s egg-citing!
April 21 (Easter Sunday)
Victoria Park Golf Club is hosting a wonderful day out for the whole family Easter Sunday. The kids will have the opportunity to enjoy face painting, a petting zoo, meet Mr and Mrs Easter bunny, and go crazy on the jumping castle while you enjoy food trucks, live music, and a good day out. This event kicks off at 9 am and runs until 4 pm, so you’ve got plenty of time to enjoy yourself.

MARTINIS AT DARLING & CO
If you’re celebrating the long-weekend sans-kids and are looking to do something a little more grown-up, why not head to Darling & Co in Paddington. The whole long weekend they’ll be serving up ‘Eggspresso Martinis’, which is as it sounds; an espresso martini served in a chocolate egg. Sign us up for one of those!

April 22 (Easter Monday)
EASTON PEARSON EXHIBITION
The Museum of Brisbane is hosting the works of Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearson, and this weekend will be your last chance to see them! 60 garments are on show alongside accessories and sketchbooks.
Those considering a stay-cation to see the exhibition would find themselves more than comfortable in either The Calile or The Fantauzzo. Both establishments are architectural masterpieces with plenty of things to do and see nearby.

Head an hour north to the beautiful Bribie Island and catch the final day of Waterworld Central, the mobile water park. There will large pools, giant inflatable slides, and the X-treme Tuber, which is 80m of downhill tubing fun!
This temporary water park is the best way to ensure your weekend ends on an egg-strodinary note.

Now your weekend is planned for you, you can sit back and enjoy the egg-sperience.
Okay, we’ll stop egg-sploiting the Easter puns.
