GRAB the sunscreen, slip on some sunnies and head for the beach because Bundy's set for a beautifully sunny Easter long weekend.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Rich Threlfall said the next four days were predicted to bring plenty of sunshine and higher than average April temperatures.

"It's looking like fine conditions," Mr Threlfall said.

"Temperatures will be a little above average."

Mr Threlfall said the only possible downside to the weather was that we may see some bigger swells tomorrow further south.

But the swells are expected to be the only moisture around.

"It should be sunny most of the time," he said.

"We probably won't see any moisture activity until Tuesday and Wednesday onwards."

Mr Threlfall said blustery conditions were also not expected at the weekend with only moderate winds predicted.

"We're looking at 20-30km winds coming mostly from the south-east," he said.

Remember to slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, slap on a hat, seek shade and slide on sunnies during the hot and sunny days ahead.
