Manly is going to come alive this Easter long weekend, from the arrival of the much anticipated “Black Ship” to the fantastic Easter markets, there will be something for everyone to enjoy! Come down for the day to Manly Harbour Village or best yet spend the long weekend at some great accommodation options such as the Manly Marina Cove Motel or the luxurious Pavilion Apartments.
FRIDAY kicks off at 8am in Little Bayside Park with the Good Friday Manly Creative Markets. Food, kids rides, music, and plenty of interesting stalls is a great way to start the long weekend.
Visit the YellowPopup Shop who will be hosting the FBI Cleaning Supplies Pop-up for some great deals, and don’t forget to grab a great acai bowl next door at Love Juice Superfood Bar .
From 10am, The Notorious Pirate Ship, a replica fifteenth century caravel that took 10 years to build and was made from reclaimed timber, will be open for inspection from Friday 14th April to Monday 17th April (10am to 4pm). Tickets will be available from the gangway to the ship on the William Gunn Jetty. The Wynnum Manly Tourism & Visitor Information Centre will also be open, and will have an “eggciting” Easter sale.
SATURDAY – the Jan Powers Farmers Markets is a great option to full the Easter basket with all sorts of delicious fresh produce and treats.
