'A Day at the Zoo' sand sculpture exhibition on The Frankston Waterfront is currently showing and this Easter there is loads of extra fun to be had. Along with all the wonderfully carved animals, mythical unicorns and the legendary Loch Ness monster, you'll be able to hunt for sandsational Easter eggs.
From Easter Friday to Easter Monday inclusive, children can search for sand sculpted eggs and in return receive a bag of chocolate Easter eggs. There's also themed face painting, daily Easter hamper giveaways as well as the chance to win a sand sculpted egg to keep.
Ongoing activities for children include sand sculpting workshops, sand art and sand bottles. A giant sand pit and Lego play zone are also set up. Parents can chill out in the undercover cafe with refreshments.
The egg hunt and activities are all included in the usual entry price of $14 per adult and $10 per child. Family passes for 2 adults and 2 children available for $42. Tickets can be purchased at the event ticket box on the day. Cash only, no Eftpos or credit card facilities.
Plenty of parking can be found adjacent to the event and the waterfront foreshore is a beautiful area where you can stroll along the parkland and the boardwalk, taking in the coastal views. Picnic tables, a children's playground and barbecues are on hand.
The Landmark Bridge (a foot bridge) spans the mouth of Kananook Creek, an array of bird life can be seen and sand dunes with coastal vegetation abound. Water sports are popular in this town that was an early fishing village. Sofia, a family friendly restaurant, provides home-style Italian food in its casual beachfront venue or you can take away fish n chips and gelato. A Visitor Information Centre will guide you to all that is on offer.
There's a lot to enjoy as we found out one evening when stumbling upon this area whilst on holiday.
