What's Open on Good Friday

What's open on Good Friday?

Pretty much nothing! If you're in NSW, Victoria, or Tasmania, forget that Woolworths run — they're all closed. And it's a similar vibe across the rest of Australia. Nationwide, Coles is taking a break too, except for a duo of stores in South Australia staying brave.

More faves like Aldi, Big W, Kmart, and Bunnings will also be taking the day off. Plan accordingly, folks!

In booze news, there's a mixed bag of who can serve alcohol across Australia. In NSW takeaway alcohol sales are banned (with some exceptions for breweries and distilleries) and licensed venues are only allowed to serve on premises between 12 pm and 10pm. 

What's Open on Easter Saturday

Rejoice! Kmarts will be open on Easter Saturday!

It's back to business on Easter Saturday!

Aldi, Woolworths, Coles, Kmart, Bunnings, Big W, and others are flipping their signs to "open" across the board in Sydney. However, Woolies and Coles warn some of their Metro stores in NSW, QLD, and VIC might keep the doors shut or tweak the hours.

What's Open on Easter Sunday 

Sunday is a time for rest, folks! In NSW, Easter Sunday is a restricted trading day, meaning businesses can't open unless they have obtained an exemption, which places such as chemists and petrol stations usually do. So if you're desperate for essentials such as milk, you might have to rely on your local servo.

Aldi, Woolworths, Coles, Kmart, and Big W will be closed.

Select Bunnings stores will be open - best to check your local websites. 

What's Open on Easter Monday

Most of Sydney will be open and ready to return to the daily grind on Easter Monday. While the day is recognised as a public holiday, there are no trading restrictions in states other than Queensland, Western Australia, and South Australia, which follow the same rules as Easter Sunday.

Aldi, Woolworths, Coles, Kmart, Bunnings, and Big W will be open.
