Smith Collective rolls out red carpet for Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny is preparing to make his first visit to the Gold Coast’s newest landmark community as Smith Collective gears up for the annual celebration.

The country’s first build-to-rent development at Southport will host a free program of Easter-themed events during the school holidays, including arts and crafts, food decorating and the chance to be photographed with everyone’s favourite rabbit.

Residents and visitors are welcome to head to the $550 million development’s outdoor retail mall for the fun and games, with families expected to embrace the chance to not only meet the Easter Bunny but discover why Smith Collective is considered a game-changer for the Gold Coast.

Smith Collective Senior Retail & Marketing Manager Mel Kite said the Easter celebration was a taste of the community-minded events the development was set to become famous for.

“As well as reinventing rental, we are committed to ensuring Smith Collective is a lifestyle destination for all Gold Coasters,” she said.

“With loads of outdoor space and a rising number of traders opening their doors, both residents and visitors are getting to see the community come to life. Our Easter celebrations are another milestone in that evolution and families who decide to pop by are sure to have a ball.”

The Easter activities will run from 10am-1pm on Thursday 18 April and Saturday 20 April, with professional children’s entertainers to host face painting, arts and crafts (Thursday) and cookie decorating (Saturday).

Children will also be able to meet the Easter Bunny, who will be handing out chocolate eggs and posing for photos in his own special area.

Smith Collective aims to redefine the traditional rental process by forgoing individual landlords and offering residents many benefits of home ownership, including long-term security and the ability to paint walls and have pets.

The community will eventually be home to 2500 people across 533 one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartments – 172 of which are accessible; 637 two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments and 82 townhouses featuring three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

It will also feature an emerging retail and dining hub, with major supermarket chain Woolworths and retail giant BWS already securing tenancies.
