Holidaying Through The Long Weekend of April – Good Friday & Easter!

Hail the long weekends this year! We’ve enjoyed two out of seven long weekends this year (excluding the strategic leave days you’ve been taking!). Coming up in April is a 3-day holiday. What to do, and where to go?

If you’re planning a getaway to recharge, we’ve got three places lined up for you!


Sydney celebrates Easter in style year in, year out! One of the biggest attractions to Sydney during this period is The Sydney Royal Easter Show. Showcasing the traditions and family favourites carried on by newer generations, the show bonds everyone across the vast country and brings newfound admiration and appreciation of Australia’s distinct traditions.

The show is a huge carnival with lots to see and so much more to do! Beyond an exciting range of amusement rides, there are animal shows, live entertainment, competitions and a whole lot of hands-on activities everyone in the family can have a go at! Of course, your tastebuds will tingle and every sight and scent of delicious, tantalizing food and drinks along the way. You can also shop at the many pavilions for wine, gifts, food, lifestyle products and many more!

And of course, Jetabout’s holiday packages for you, especially for the Easter weekend, means greater savings, amazing experiences and way more fun for everyone than you ever thought possible!


Visiting Bali in Easter is one of the best ideas you’ll have this long weekend. Festivals are a huge draw for locals and tourists alike. Although Bali is made of predominantly Hindu residents, they harmonious lifestyle means an melting pot of other religious celebrations are just as important and welcomed.


We recommend a stay at Alila’s range of accommodation. Whether you’re after a dreamy resort by the sea in East Bali, a luxury getaway in a resort southwest or hillside retreat in Ubud, there’s the best villas and resorts for you to choose from.

Jetabout also offers you a complimentary 60-minute Spa Alila Signature Massage and depending on your options, you can also enjoy an additional third night’s stay for free! Find out more about our Bali promotions!


Thailand is one of the most popular destinations for a quick getaway, with Bangkok being the most common vacation spot (yes, we hear you screaming Platinum Fashion Mall and Jatujak).

If you’re planning a long weekend trip to also explore different side of Thailand, we’ve got a sweet deal at The Berkeley Hotel Pratunam in Bangkok and Royal Pavilion in beach resort town – Hua Hin for a 5D4N stay!

Hua Hin is also a fantastic destination for a weekend of new experiences and fun!
