The Hottest Easter Events in Melbourne

Easter is almost at our door, and many Aussies are beginning to wonder what activities are there to attend in Melbourne for the holiday. Kids are looking forward to that thrilling week, when they are allowed to get all dirty and messy, decorating eggs and participating in various Easter decoration craft activities. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that almost the entire second half of March is filled with numerous festivals, games, contests, meets and other events. The best part is that most of these are free or with a minimal ticket price of $10 per kid, and you get to bring your own materials, eggs and toys, if you want to. Here’s what you can expect this Easter:
