Easter and Anzac Day long weekend – 5 days of holiday bliss

Easter bounces into town in late April and it’s packing a bonus Anzac Day holiday in its goody basket. With fairs, festivals and carnivals going on around the country, it begs the question, “What are you going to do with your 5 days of Aussie holiday heaven?”…

Hoopla rolls into Darling Harbour, Sydney for the Easter Long Weekend from 22 – 25 April. See some of the world’s best circus performers and artists walk the tight rope, swing from trapeze, eat fire and take on jaw-dropping daredevil stunts.

Plonked right between all the harbourside action and the best of the CBD is the Somerset Hotel Darling Harbour, one of our most regularly flattered city hotels.
