What's Open on Good Friday in Sydney?

What to do on Good Friday and over the Easter Long Weekend

What to do on Good Friday and What's Open on Good Friday?

We were going just to add this content to the Easter in Sydney page as 'What to do on Good Friday' and 'What's Open on Good Friday' are hot topics, until Saturday, so here we are.

Not everything is closed on Good Friday

Not everything closes on Good Friday, although a lot of people will be surprised how quiet it is. Dead is word you might have heard to describe it. This is unfair, Sydney doesn't die, but it does hide. So what to do and where to find it.

What to do on Good Friday

What to do on Good Friday? Easy, do the number one thing to do in Sydney, catch the Manly Ferry to Manly, you can visit the Manly Sea Life Sanctuary, which is located a short stroll from the ferry wharf, or head for Shelly Beach. You will find more details and ideas from the top 5 things to do in Sydney

Easter Show, Family Show, Hoopla Festival

If Manly doesn't grab you go to the Easter Show or Family Show at Moore Park. Be warned you won't be alone... Darling Harbour is another spot with the Hoopla Festival and Powerhouse Museum among other attractions. See listings on the Easter in Sydney page.

Go to the Zoo!

Taronga Zoo is open and it is one of the top things to do in Sydney.

Go to the Market

Some markets will be open including Paddy's Market. Check the list and the useful links page not forgetting the market finder!

Are you into sport?

Sports fans can watch a game of Rugby League (Bulldogs vs Souths), either go to the match or you might find a pub. Pubs are allowed to open from 12pm to 10pm but bottleshops will be closed.

Go out for Lunch or Dinner

I know what you're thinking; my local restaurant is closed for Good Friday! There is a very good chance everybody's local restaurant is closed for Good Friday except for one or two. They don't have to close they choose to close or don't realise that there is nothing stopping them from opening.

Follow this link for cafes and restaurants who dare to open on Public Holidays.

Go and see a movie!

I know, why didn't I think of that! All of Sydney's cinemas should be open on Good Friday. Follow the link below to see what is currently on at the movies in Sydney and where to see it.

What Movies are on?

Think of today as an opportunity to do something different

Finally, look at this from a different prospective, it is going to be very quiet other than some of the places mentioned and the beach (if it's going to be a nice day). What can you do now more easily than normal? For example, do you have access to a bike? How about a cycle ride around town? According to Sydney's bike loving major, there are lots of cycle paths. Maybe just go on photography tour around town. If you just want to relax and take it easy could just buy the Top 100 Travel Guide, find a nice quiet spot, and read it.

Take a break

You might just decide it makes more sense to spend the day travelling to somewhere else. Please allow yourself the time to stop and relax on route. Use the Stop. Revive. Survive. places by the side of the road or better still, get right off the Highway / Freeway for a while. If you driving north towards Brisbane we have listed a few stops you could make and even places where you could stay overnight. Whatever you are planning, please stay safe.

Day Trips and longer

There's more to do on Good Friday

We have mentioned a few top things to do in Sydney that will be open but there will be many more. Public transport will be running along with the ferries and as a bonus, you may find them a little less crowed than usual as everybody thinks everything is closed. So we suggest you go through the list, pick out something that interests you and then just check to ensure they are open. You may be pleasantly surprised.
