There’s also lots happening around the tram route: Tūranga is hosting plenty of school holiday events, the Botanic Gardens has a Whatu Kāhu Discovery Trail for kids to explore, and Margaret Mahy Playground is always a fun place for children of all ages.

Calling all chocoholics: we’ve got a big jar full of Easter eggs to give away!
