One-a-penny, two-a-penny, what to do this Easter?

Hot cross buns, chocolate bunnies and family get-togethers are just a few of the things to look forward to at Easter time. With everyone celebrating Easter differently, the Bayside area and beyond has something for all. At
C&G, we’ve had a quiet chat with the Easter bunny to find out exactly what we can look forward to. 

Hot Cross Buns

For the best buns, visit Ferguson Plarre Bakehouse in Highett – they’re loaded with fruit and are fresh-made daily. Baker D. Chirico in St Kilda is also a good choice, with their buns coming highly recommended by the Herald Sun last Easter. You might also like to be adventurous and try WoodFrog Bakery’s hot cross buns, which come highly recommended by Good Food and are a cross between a Jewish-style challah (braided egg loaf eaten on Shabbat) and a traditional hot cross bun.

The Great Luna Park Easter Egg Hunt

Game on! Chocoholics and thrill-seekers rejoice, because Darrell Lea eggs are going to be strewn across the St Kilda’s favourite fun park this Easter, and it’s free to play if you have an Unlimited Ride Ticket or Family Pass. Even if you don’t – it’s only a gold coin to join in! The hunt is segregated into four age groups though, so make sure you look up the times here. You can also expect face-painting, live music, a giant Easter bunny and of course, holiday feature rides.

Church Services

The Anglican Parish Church of Saint Andrew (Brighton) will be running two services on Easter Sunday. You can also visit Christ Church St Kilda for early morning services, and St Kilda Elsternwick Baptist Church is also open for worship. 

Royal Botanical Gardens Easter Hunt

For a fun day out in the city, why not join the fun at the Royal Botanical Gardens Easter Hunt? With plenty of chocolate eggs to be found, leafy bunny ears to be made, songs to sing and a veggie garden to explore (what do Easter bunnies actually eat?), it’s a great event for children aged 2-6 years old. It’s on this Saturday, March 26, and you can book here.

The Big Goose Easter Egg Scramble

For residents in the vicinity of our Mt Martha office, you may like to check out the Easter Egg Scramble at The Big Goose, the children’s farm in Moorooduc! Join an egg and spoon races, meet the Easter Bunny, play on the tyre maze or take a pony ride - it’s on for the whole long weekend, March 25 – 28. Get tickets here.

Whatever you choose to do this long weekend, C&G bids you take care on the roads and have a safe and happy Easter.
