Cheers to the long weekend! We have an Easter egg-stravaganza lined up for this weekend as we celebrate all things Easter! There is nothing that we love more than a sugar-fuelled dining adventure, and our food vendors are delivering on the Easter goods! From next-level chocolate egg themed donuts, to cronuts and crazy shakes… get ready to treat yo’ self!

We have an action packed program for the kids, with a Easter Treasure Hunt through the markets on Friday, and three hours of FREE Easter fun in the Kid’s Carnival including the Easter Bunny, a real life bunny and a magic show on Saturday!

Bleach Festival is coming to NightQuarter on Saturday night, and bringing 10 piece Peruvian salsa band Sabor y Control, direct from South America! With a percussion workshop in the afternoon, and then live performances from Sabor y Control and Rio Rhythmics… it’s going to be a sweaty and sultry night of dancing.

On Friday, watch the Titans take on the Broncos in the Backyard… or get your line dance on with a huge lineup of country music in the Paddock.

Join us for an eggcellent weekend! #allthepuns
