Traditional family fun at the 10th annual Easter Fun Festival


Phillip Island Nature Parks’ 10th annual Easter Fun Festival promises two excitement-filled days on Saturday 31st March and Sunday 1st April as this popular and traditional community event brings Churchill Island Heritage Farm alive with activities, demonstrations, and entertainment to suit all ages.

The dedicated Kids’ Zone will be abuzz with all-day activities such as mini golf, arts and craft activities, face painting, and giant games. Be entertained and inspired by TRASH PUPPETS, using recycled items to make master pieces in the most sustainable environment.

The Heritage Farm will host demonstrations of the much-loved working horses, courtesy of the Victorian Heritage Draught Horse Club, plus a whole range of traditional hands on farming activities and demonstrations including scheduled tractor rides, cow milking, sheep shearing, working dogs and whip cracking. Step into yesteryear with a wonderful display of vintage cars and caravans.

The Festival Lawn is a great place to sit back, relax and enjoy a bite to eat or a drink while listening to the sounds of local musicians against the stunning backdrop of Western Port Bay. Shaun Kenny’s mix of covers and chilled melodies, followed by the return of Corie Blackey’s Family Show, getting everyone on their feet for a boogie. Settle in for Mel Yates an exciting new young talent. On Sunday, enjoy The Family Show in the morning, then local lads Nic and Archie.

Last but certainly not least, don’t miss the popular Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday morning from 10am – 1pm. Kids will be let loose to fill their supplied Easter egg baskets, in age specific groupings, with each egg finding session lasting 2 minutes, and hunts occurring every 10 – 15 minutes.
