There is still time to book an Easter holiday on the Gold Coast. Why not spend the holiday lazing by the beach, getting your adrenaline fix at a local theme park, explore the hinterland or just relax and eat your way through the local restaurants these the local holidays.

Gemini Court Easter EggsDid you know that Easter Eggs come from early traditions where chicken eggs (or even ostrich eggs) were painted? We have since grown accustomed to the foil wrapped chocolate eggs.

The egg has always been a symbol of fertility and rebirth, and in Christianity is it used to symbolise the empty tomb from Jesus’ rebirth.  There is also a legend that Mary Magdalene was making eggs when she went to visit the tomb, and those eggs turned bright red when she saw that Jesus had risen – which is why they now come in such a variety of colours when you’re at the supermarket.
