And, with school vacations and Easter approaching, it promises to be a very busy month. To save you time, we’ve compiled a list of events in the Sutherland Shire for April.

What more could you want from a market than delicious global cuisines, children’s toys, a range of local homewares, fashion, and art, a real-life Easter bunny dishing out chocolate eggs, and Cronulla’s magnificent beachfront as a backdrop? This egg-citing Easter-themed event will take place on Saturday, April 1st and Sunday, April 2nd from 10:00am to 3:00pm at Don Lucas Reserve.

Visit Nina’s Chocolates in Gymea for their Easter metamorphosis, or Essenze Chocolates in Caringbah for their intricate patterns.


Learn about Jack Gray’s new dinner menu.

We’ll take any excuse for a date or a girls’ night out, so when we heard Jack Grey had a fresh new dinner menu, you can bet we were the first to make reservations. Embracing the burrata revolution, options include autumn-inspired meals like Burrata with Walnuts, Honey, and Fresh Figs, Kingfish Sashimi in Mandarin and Dill, Braised Beef Short Rib, and – brace yourself – freshly-made Cob Loaf.

Design a Custom Body Board At The New Caringbah Store

HandPicked’s expertise have perfected body board design, and they’ve just reached the streets of Caringbah. The experience is superior to that of a typical sports outlet shop, and the whole procedure is completely customised from beginning to end. Choose the deck, pin, rail, and slick colours, as well as your chosen logo image, and then sit back and let the professionals perform their magic.


Keep the kids engaged with sports, art workshops, and day trips.

We understand that school vacations may be exhausting when you’re travelling with a slew of little, lively individuals. But don’t worry; the Shire has plenty of fascinating activities to fit everyone’s personality and keep them delighted.

Allow high-energy youth to learn a new talent at Shire Elite Cheerleading, ClimbFit, or Cronulla Surfing Academy. For those who like getting messy and being creative, schedule a workshop at Hazelhurst Art Gallery, a Slime Party at Highfields, or a clay lesson at Part Time Ceramics. Finally, for the smaller explorers, plan a day excursion to one of the Shire’s numerous natural swimming pools or nature trails. If you really need a day off to catch up on some life admin, drop them off at Sutherland’s PCYC for a full day of fun. View our comprehensive School Holiday Guide here.


Attend An ANZAC Day Service.

Attend one of the Shire’s ANZAC Day memorial ceremonies to honour the courageous Australians who served proudly for our nation. There’s one in almost every suburb (Bundeena, Caringbah, Cronulla, Menai, and Woronora to mention a few).
