If you're still on the lookout for Easter plans to make the most of your long weekend, look no further. The beautiful Terrace Cafe, reborn and redesigned by Darling Group (Higher GroundKettle BlackStringers) late last year, is hosting an Easter Sunday high tea nestled in one of the city's leafiest spots.

Running on Sunday, April 9 from 11am, the Easter High Tea will set you back $95 per person. The iconic lakeside cafe in the Royal Botanic Gardens will serve up a traditional tier of petit gateaux, scones and canapes. Expect the menu to run to the likes of lemon myrtle cheesecakes and mini smoked salmon and horseradish cream bagels. A glass of Pommery Champagne is also included in the price.

Surrounded by greenery, the team's all-day cafe and adjoining event space have been designed in a nod to their lush outlook, with interiors by Technē featuring plenty of botanical references throughout.

If you're after an even more indulgent experience, the Higher Ground team is also hosting a champagne and caviar brunch ($110 per person) with Pommery Champagne and Polaco Baerii Caviar served on blinis paired with fennel pollen creme fraiche.
