What a day! October has almost ended and it feels like Summer already!
Firstly, if any one is looking for last minute Halloween costumes and accessories pop into Dollar King in the Mall, it has it all!
Fingers crossed the weather stays this wonderful for the weekend, especially with the Beachfest on at Dunningham Park, Peryman Square and the Plaza. Retro cars will be on display for judging and awards with live bands and solo performers over the two days.
Starting from the south, half of Eclectic Home & Garden sits empty waiting for a new shop owner.
We finally have a new tenant in the former Chocpad shop – Leah’s Wax Works has moved in! Further down the mall Classic Nails Beauty and Waxing has also moved into the former Body Pro Supplements store.
Unfortunately we’re still eagerly waiting to see who will eventually move into the old Australand Greenhills Beach office.
Forever Fashion are closing down with 50% of storewide. I wonder what new store will appear here?!
The optometrists near Code Orange are surrounded by builders and scaffolding, a new store layout perhaps?
Nutrition station is opening soon where La Luna was and the local computer store next door to McDonalds and the Cronulla Cinemas entrance has also closed.
Closer to the beach new coffee shop Bianchini’s is doing a roaring trade, looks like a popular spot!
Easter is fast approaching! This year Easter is early and before the school holidays, the perfect 4 day long weekend opportunity to escape to the holiday house before the colder weather rolls in! If you are looking to rent a holiday house we have a few options in Mollymook but if you are staying home Cronulla will be holding the Easter Show in Cronulla Mall again this year.
The Cronulla Easter Show kicks off in Cronulla Plaza for 2013 on Friday 29th March at 10am and runs for 4 days finishing at 4pm on Monday 1st April. Wandering entertainers, market stalls, activity stalls, face painting, carnival rides, showbags and much more will make your Easter extra special at Cronulla.
It’s FREE! The event is run by a local council group. PLUS it’s nice and close to home without the stress or crowds out at the Sydney Royal Easter Show at Homebush!
Circus School – 10am to 4pm daily (free)
Animal Farm – 10am to 4pm daily ($3 per child or $5 for 2 children, adults free)
NEW Animal Caper Shows – Fri, Sat & Sun 1pm, 2pm & 3pm (free)
Hot Potato – Fri & Mon 11am to 2pm
Kush Carnivale on Stilts – Sat & Sun from Noon to 3pm

Showbags – You don’t have to head into Homebush for showbags, Cronulla has everything and more including Spongebob Squarepants, Mickey Mouse, Angry Birds, Dora the Explorer, My Little Pony, Thomas the Tank Engine and Ben 10! Whether you’re obsessed with lollies or a keen magician, you’ll be able to find just what you’re looking for with the easy to download Cronulla Showbag Guide.
How to get here? Parking in Cronulla is bad at the best of times (see parking map here) let alone during special events, but luckily there are alternatives. With trains terminating at Cronulla train station very frequently, this is definitely an option to consider if you are traveling from nearby suburbs. Bicycle racks are also located at Cronulla Station, along Cronulla St (near Cold Rock Ice Creamery) and on the ground floor of the Croydon St car park.
And for all those selling their properties, we have commenced the mad
rush to Easter! Good luck!
It’s only early days but in the next coming months the annual much loved local Cronulla Spring Festival will take over!

“The most number of people wearing superhero costumes in one location”
This record is currently held by the US – 1,580 participants dressed up to promote the movie ‘Megamind’, including the likes of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt and Tina Fey on October 2nd 2010 in Los Angeles. They’ve held the record for over a year and now Cronulla wants a share!
Cronulla’s Day of Heroes will be one of the biggest events hitting the shores of Cronulla in 2012! For more details visit the official Facebook page here!
TO REGISTER: $5 for 1 superhero or $15 for 4, so bring a crowd!
WHERE: Cronulla Plaza DATE: Sunday 12th February 2012 TIME: 10am – 3pm
To qualify for a Guinness Book of Records attempt, there are of course rules that must be followed (and thankfully there’s only five!):
Each person must be dressed as a recognised superhero
A recognised superhero is one that has been used in a published book, comic, television programme or film
Each persons costume must be instantly recognisable as the superhero they are portraying
All participants must be in position simultaneously and remain so for a minimum of 10 minutes
All participants must wear the costume for the entirety of the attempt
Sounds easy? It is! What a great way to spend a Sunday – cover Cronulla in Superheroes and dress up for a cause!
