Normally this long weekend is marked by long lines of traffic, large family gatherings, egg hunts with lots of small children running around and churches full of worshippers for the Christian faith's most auspicious holiday.
But Easter 2020 will be one like no other.
Pandemic rules mean no holidays down the coast, no visiting family and friends (except in "essential" circumstances), no gathering at beaches, and even a ban on attending church services.
But this hasn't stopped Mount Ousley residents Tija and Jay Hurry and their daughters Amber, 8, and Imogen, 6 from partaking in some typical Easter fun.
"If we're not working, we'd definitely go camping at Easter," Ms Hurry said. "We love the outdoors, being out and having a campfire. We usually go to Kangaroo Valley and roast marshmallows, and we go with friends, the kids ride around and socialise and it gets us away from screens and technology."
With none of this an option, the family has instead set up a campsite in their Mount Ousley backyard.
"We'll toast marshmallows on our little campfire, play music and dance in the backyard," Mr Hurry said.
"It's a strange time, because this is the weekend where everyone usually catches up with their friends and family, and it's disappointing that we can't go away but we're lucky to have the four of us together."
Across the country, other families are also encouraged to camp out in their own yards, with the Caravan Association of Australia encouraging people to post pictures to social media of how they are holidaying at home.
The tourism body says around 300,000 Australians would normally hit the road to go camping over Easter, and hopes to bring people together with their "Camp at Homes Heroes" campaign.
Churches are also continuing with their easter plans in a new way.
St Michael's Cathedral senior minister Sandy Grant said his church would "grieve that we can't gather," but said parishioners were quickly adapting to online church services, which will be held across the Easter weekend.
"People who haven't been to church in a long time, or in some cases who have never been, are attending our livestreamed services," he said.
"In this time of uncertainty, they're realising freshly that we're not in control so it's making people turn back to God. We grieve that we can't gather, but it's great people can have a fresh look at Christ."
In a message to the diocese, Catholic bishop Brian Mascord also acknowledged the strange times.
"Over the last few weeks, the world has become a lonelier and more insecure place," he said.
"The freedom and joy of gathering with our loved ones has been reduced to a minimum. Our television screens are filled with disturbing news about the thousands around the world who have succumbed to the coronavirus.
"What is worse, at a time when the sacred rites of our Christian faith should be a comfort, we are not able to pray together in our parish churches."
However he said the Christian Easter story - in which Jesus Christ rose from the dead - could offer "a message of hope" to believers at a tough time.
Bishop Mascord will present the masses and liturgies of the Catholic "holy week" from St John Vianney Co-Cathedral in Fairy Meadow, with churchgoers able to tune in on Facebook or YouTube.
