Easter is coming up fast and with that comes a string of celebrations and time with family for many of us. As much fun as Easter with the whole gang is, we’re sure those of you who are hosting family or guests for the whole 4-day working holiday are stressing—not only are there so many people to cater for, but there are always diets to work around and people who never arrive on time (there’s always that one person)!
To help take a little weight off your shoulders, we’ve put together a guide on what’s open this Easter long weekend. Let these places take care of your guests’ dietary requirements PLUS you can make a booking so that everyone has incentive not to be late!
