Top Easter Egg Hunts in Melbourne and Victoria

Easter egg hunt

There are many different ways you can host an Easter egg hunt indoors. For the younger kids, make it simple by hiding eggs around your lounge room and kitchen. For the older kids, you can write a series of clues that your kids have to solve, which sends them on a hunt around the house to find their eggs.

We try our best to provide accurate information on kid-friendly events around Victoria but do recommend parents check details directly to confirm dates, times, prices as some details may be subject to change. Disclosure: The Booktopia links provided in this blog are affiliate links.
