When Brisbane's annual four-day weekend rolls around, there's time enough to a little bit of everything. Fancy sleeping in and getting comfy on the couch? Sure, devote 24 hours to that. Keen to roam far and wide, getting a big dose of nature? Again, slot it in the calendar. Want to hang out by the river, drinking brews, listening to live tunes and playing games on the grass? Slot that in for Saturday, April 8–Sunday, April 9, too.

The place to head: CBD riverside precinct Howard Smith Wharves, which is hosting Easter Extravaganza on the Main Lawn. For two days, Brisbanites can kick back by the water, have a bite to eat, get sipping and celebrate all things Easter on the spot's patch of turf.

On Saturday, you'll want to head from 12pm till late. On Sunday, the fun runs from 10.30am, also till late.

Whichever suits, there'll be savoury and sweet crêpes, gourmet baguettes and a sausage sizzle to tuck into, plus Easter-themed cocktails, champagne and Felons' beers. For kids, there's also an Easter egg hunt at 10.30am on the Sunday, with 8000-plus chocolate orbs waiting to be found.

Entry is free all weekend, but you'll be paying for whatever you eat and drink.
