Can you believe Easter is almost upon us? For some, Easter is not as huge a celebration like Christmas and with the weather starting to cool, can often become a missed opportunity to make the most of the holiday period.
Maybe it is overlooked as an opportunity to gather. If that is you, I wanted to share a few ideas for bringing family together this Easter; after all, the disconnection we have all experienced over the last two years has taken its toll on many relationships and so when there is a chance to get together, I say, let’s make the most of it!
When your children fly the nest or family live apart, what better place to bring them together than in the Blue Mountains, to breathe in the mountain air and enjoy the peace and tranquillity together.
And here are a few ideas to inspire your next gathering and entice those that may otherwise stay home, to come out and play together!
Explore a market together
Why not gather family and visit the Glenbrook Rotary Markets together and browse away a few hours and soak up the atmosphere and buzz of a well-established market. The markets are held on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays each month (except January). Both will have over 70 stalls plus their famous Book Fair store with a huge variety twice a month. The Glenbrook Rotary Markets offerings are diverse enough to ensure you have a gloriously full basket and belly. Fashion, Homewares, Giftware, food, fresh produce, and flowers including live entertainment.
You could even choose a book each to take back and curl up with at home or read together. If you are staying in one of our Mountain Whispers properties, then a warm bubbly bath could be just the spot to tuck into a tasty treat with a new novel!
Go on a mystery together!
