A Bunch Of The Best Local Shops Around Australia For Your Easter Fix

It’s been strangely hard to notice this year, but the Easter long weekend is just about upon us. If you’ve somehow managed to prepare already, I’m honestly so impressed by you. For the rest of us who have been a little preoccupied with a certain pandemic, it’s not too late.

I don’t know about you, but for me the fact that we’re at home all week long makes it especially necessary to differentiate the days. That means I plan to indulge in Easter treats like I’m five again, and I refuse to feel guilty.

I’ve put together my dream list of best Easter food supplies from around the country so you can support local and have an indoor ball.

Country-wide

Make your own

If you’re a better adult than me and actually enjoy a little DIY baking, then don’t forget you can always make your own hot cross buns. These classic recipes by Maggie BeerDonna Hay and X should get you started.
