With some states already immersed in school holidays and others just started, you might be keen to get out of town right about now. But if your annual leave doesn’t stretch to a week or two away, then the Easter extra-long weekend is a great opportunity to escape.
If you’re getting away, then take a suitcase full of gorgeous clothes with my what to pack for a weekend trip travel wardrobe below.
We will be heading down to Bright in Victoria – a town known for its spectacular autumn colour and lush valley position, surrounded by mountains. It’s also known for crisp, cool weather, so I think the Witchery puffer jacket would come in very handy!
I spent every Easter here as a child, staying in one of the caravan parks back when you were allowed to have an open fire outside your van. We would go bike riding or trout fishing during the day and cook potatoes in the fire at night. Bliss!
Perhaps my memories are rose-coloured, but it remains a picturesque town with plenty of adventures to be had and I can’t wait to share it with the kids.

What to pack for a weekend trip
4 day Easter long weekend
Easter is the ultimate long weekend with public holidays on both the Friday and Monday, giving you the opportunity for a 4 day long weekend.
As Easter falls in autumn the travel wardrobe below has the layers that are required in much of the country at this time of year.
The weather in Sydney over Easter is forecast to be 24-25°c during the day and 16-18°c at night. The forecast is for mostly fine weather.
Melbourne, on the other hand, is forecast to have a much wider range of temperatures – 20-26˚c during the day and 10-15˚c at night with perhaps a few showers.
So while a t-shirt and skirt might be enough on a gloriously sunny afternoon, a cosy jumper and parka might be necessary on a chilly morning.
But the joy of packing for a long weekend is that, although you don’t really need very much, you can probably fit a few extra outfits in to give yourself plenty of choice.
1 Birdsnest Bubble Dress
2 Seed Short sleeve split tee
3 Country Road Fluffy roll neck knit sweater
4 Funkis Gertrude clog low
5 French Connection Geo tote
6 Decjuba Je Ne Sais Quoi Band Tee
7 Frankie4 Belle metallic boots
8 Gorman Sparkle stripe socks
9 Witchery Mila Zip Jean Vintage Wash
10 Decjuba Bridget printed midi skirt
11 Witchery Long line puffer
Mix and match to suit the weather and what you’re doing.
