We love Easter in Bendigo, but this year our Easter celebration will look a little bit different due to current COVID guidelines. 

The City of Greater Bendigo is delighted to be able to offer an alternative program; Eggs-plore Bendigo at Easter.  Held April 2 - 5 it features a wide range of smaller family friendly activities and entertainment held across multiple venues, that can be managed in a COVID-safe way.

With over 20 fun-packed events throughout the city Eggs-plore Bendigo has something on offer for everyone in the family to enjoy. The program includes lots of family favourites, including children’s workshops and activities, carnival rides, traditional Chinese performances, the Rotary Easter Art Show, Farmer Darryl’s animal farm, a hand made artisans experience, the Easter Book Fair, music, a movie in the park and much more.

There will also be many other ways to enjoy our vibrant city at Easter, including the Mary Quant: Fashion Revolutionary exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery, visiting the Golden Dragon MuseumVintage Talking TramCentral Debrah Gold Mine and more. Discover Australia's only UNESCO City Of Gastronomy with our great restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars, breweries and wineries. 
We can’t wait to celebrate Easter with you!
