Easter holidays are almost here!

SandcastleEaster is always a busy weekend on the Cooloola Coast. It is still great beach weather and the few extra days off sees plenty of families enjoy the great outdoors more than the Easter eggs. The holidays tend to fill up quickly – so if you were planning a visit our way, book now!

Dawn service

The Rainbow Beach Christian Community will be hosting a dawn service on Easter Sunday April 4, at the propeller from 5.30am.

Chappy Ronnie said, “Everyone is welcome to join us for a celebration of Jesus’s resurrection with music, a short devotion and refreshments – BYO blanket and torch.”

Following the success of the 2014 Sandcastle Competition, it will be held again in the second week of the school holidays on Tuesday, April 14, with registration from 8.30am on the beach north of the surf lifesaving tower.

The competition will start at 9am, with judging at 11am. Presentation of prizes will be at 11.30am. Registration fee is $10 per team of up to 6 members – BYO buckets and spades. If you would like more information about any of these events, please call Chappy Ronnie on 0413 135 867.

Holiday activities

Hop-a-long to the libraries for free craft activities for the kids – and more arty adventures at the Gympie Regional Gallery. Book in to Rainbow Beach’s Gallery Jilarty for a class – and come away with your own decor art or other treasure.

Kick back to live music

Visit the pub and the club and relax (or dance) to some live music. Both venues have a children’s room, so you can keep them entertained whilst you enjoy a quiet one or two.
