Easter egg hunts are a big favourite with the kids and Melbourne has quite a few happening this Easter. They are very popular, so it's good to get in early and make a booking. Here's a selection of what's on including a doggy egg hunt for those who would like to share Easter with the fur-kids!
The Easter Show has a wide range of attractions and entertainment including live music, a carnival, animal farm, stalls, exhibitions, showbags and special guests. The Easter Egg Hunt will be operating daily over the 4 days from 10:20am until 5.00pm. For more information and tickets, see the website.
Rippon Lea Estate consists of a historic mansion surrounded by extensive beautifully landscaped gardens.
