Hey hey it’s Easter next week: travel tips, ideas and advice

Chocolate eggs, bunnies, parties, fun in the sun.

It’s Easter and that combination listed above plus the good weather means it’s a great time to head out on a trip over the holiday break.

So get on your skates and check out some of the options we offer.

In our last newsletter we listed six places you could tackle for varying reasons including Australia, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Philippines and North America.

Here’s an excerpt:

It’s still warm in Australia at Easter time, but not too hot, and this means you can pretty much travel anywhere on the continent in comfort – this should make some travellers happy.

In central Queensland April is the perfect time for an island holiday. Sailing, sun tanning, snorkelling, diving, late night beach parties, great food and sunshine are all on the menu for a sojourn on South Molle Island in the incredible Whitsunday region. South Molle is a picturesque island and mostly national park with hilly terrain, lush rainforest, coral reefs and secluded bays (it featured on this Coca-Cola commercial). South Molle is also the largest of the Molle island group and is the only one with a resort – Adventure Island Resort, part of the VIP Backpackers network. The resort not only has great activities but the accommodation won’t break the bank and they are mainly self sufficient for water and power.
