The Great Fraser Easter Egg Hunt is on...
Easter Sunday wouldn’t be Easter without a special appearance from the Easter Bunny who, under the cover of night, will be hiding Easter Eggs in and around the resort grounds and poolside for a special children’s Easter Egg hunt. Join our Ranger team at 11am (please check the What's On guide to confirm this time) as we search high, low and everywhere in between for those elusive eggs. The Easter Bunny is also tipped to make a special appearance, with plenty of treats for the kids. 

FOR THE BIGGER KIDS...

Our therapists are taking advantage of the gorgeous weather offering 30 minute outdoor massages for the Easter long weekend.  Our poolside treatments will take place on the undercover decks beside the main pool (lower level, the Centre Complex) from Saturday March 26  to Easter Monday 11am-4pm (subject to availability) during the holidays and are weather dependent.
