Good Friday marks the start of the Easter Weekend holiday period. Good Friday has its origins in the christian faith known as the day on which Jesus Christ was crucified. Over the Easter weekend, Christian's traditionally eat fish on Good Friday and in Australia the old Fish and Chip shops do a roaring trade. Good Friday morning is also the morning that we enjoy warm Hot Cross Buns.
Easter is celebrated in Australia's Autumn season and it is normally still quite warm thru those months of March and April. School holidays are generally on at these times too with the end of Term 1 for most Australian schools. Hence many families will use he time to get away and have a holiday. Many go camping but also many more visit ciites around Australia to take in the sights and activities the great cities have to offer. And many restaurants and venues are open to welcome guests for meals and accommodation.
