Easter Monday Picnic Guide

Easter Monday, the day after Easter. You wake up feeling like you ate a weeks worth of food in one day (because you did) and possibly nursing a cheeky little hangover.

There is only one cure, getting out of the house! We have a little tradition of heading for a picnic in the sunshine.

Easter Monday Picnic


The ocean cures everything and makes you feel instantly alive plus keeps the kids happily entertained, so the location is a no brainer. We pack up all the necessities, A beautiful rug, some cushions because you never know when you might need a nap and some delicious but light lunch.

On the menu this year is an easy but tasty bruschetta and ice tea cocktails to wash it all down. In Australia we have so many beautiful beaches that we are spoilt for choice. My advice is definitely take the road less traveled.

Find yourself a remote little patch of sand that isn't crowded. Where you can turn your radio up that little bit louder. Somewhere with enough space you can hit a ball (we are Australian after all) and stay till the sun meets the horizon!
