Easter happiness on the Goldfields

Come celebrate Easter with us, there’s so much to see and do.

Harcourt has it

Get in on the hunt

Join in on the annual Easter Egg Hunt put on by the Harcourt Progress Association and enjoy a day filled with live music, craft activities and age based egg hunts.

Wear your very best bunny ears for the chance to win tickets to see Peter Rabbit the movie this Easter at Castlemaine’s Theatre Royal.

Normally in the Oak Forest, this year the event will be held in the lush green parkland surrounding Harcourt’s Goldfields Track Café (who’ll be serving hot cross buns and Easter donuts!). With all the extra visitors to the new mountain bike park the association has decided to take a bit more time before conducting large events in the vicinity of the park.

The Maldon Easter Fair started in 1877 making it one of the oldest in Australia and it’s still going strong. A special Easter tradition for locals and visitors alike, the Fair runs from 30 March to 1 April culminating in the fabulous Easter Parade on Easter Sunday with an Aussie egg toss and Chinese Lion dancers.

Enter the scone baking competition, enjoy the torchlight procession, pick up a treat at the Easter market, try your hand at the hole in one competition at the golf course ($2,000 first prize!) or visit the quilt show. The Vintage Engine Rally is an annual highlight featuring a variety of old, antique and very rare working machinery from the horse drawn and steam eras.
