10 Easter Activities for Kids
See below for what’s on this Easter in Eumundi for kids with 10 Easter Activities that will keep kids entertained for hours. We think you’ll probably enjoy them too!
Let Loose in Dick Caplick Park
The kids will love this shady park located right next to the markets. There’s loads of great play equipment to keep the kids entertained for hours, including rope bridges suspended from the trees. The park works in harmony with nature and the trees are majestic, so it’s a fine place to rest your legs over a coffee while the kids burn off some energy.
Get Your Face Painted Like an Easter Bunny
Who wants to leave the market without their face painted? Well, if face painting is your thing, you’ll find talented artists creating amazing faces in a few locations around the markets. Look out for the painted faces and you’ll find your way there!
Lose Yourself in a World of Books
Everyone will love wandering around the extensive shelves of legendary Berkelouw Books. There are new and second hand books on offer with every taste accommodated. This is also a great shop for gifts, puzzles and games and Berkelouw Cafe is the perfect spot to idle a while over a refreshing drink and your new read.
Get Photographed with the Famous Eumundi Fairy
If you’re in the right place at the right time, you won’t miss our famous fairy. She comes with all the colour and fancy you’d expect, as well as a special helping of glitter and magic. This is a great photo opportunity, so keep your eye peeled for Debbie!
Go For a Dip at Eumundi Aquatic Centre
This 25 metre pool is well worth diving into on a hot day. It’s a short walk from the heart of the village and there’s a little cafe selling coffee and a lush grassy area to relax in. There’s also a toddler pool for the little ones.
Watch a Koala Appear from a Balloon
You haven’t seen balloon art if you haven’t been to Eumundi Markets. Our artists take this to another level and do things with balloons that you would never imagine! Check out market legend, Miss Donna, who can pretty much fashion anything from balloons. How about a koala climbing up a gum tree or a kangaroo with a joey in the pouch? Impressed? You will be!
Go Mountain Biking in Eumundi Conservation Park
Did you know that Eumundi has its own trail network with multiple tracks ranging from 2.3km – 6.6km. The perfect spot for mountain biking or a family bush walk. The bushland provides an important refuge and corridor for wildlife and offers shady trails through towering eucalypt forests. There is an old cattle station and dam that make the perfect spot to break for a snack and enjoy the serenity!
Access is via the Eumundi-Noosa Road just a few minutes before you reach Eumundi itself.
Grab a Tasty Snack for Lunch
PC’s Pizza & Burger Bar is also on the main street serving up great take away food that kids will love and that won’t bust the bank.
Meet the Animals at Terella Brewing & Kid’s Farm
This wholesome brewery and pub is nestled in farmland just outside Eumundi. It’s well worth the short scenic drive and the kids can run a mock when they get there. The vast open area includes a kid’s farm which is full of animals for the kids to meet on weekends. Look out for events here as they frequently have open sky cinemas and other kid friendly goings on. See below for Terella’s Easter Weekend Activities.
Immerse Yourself in Eumundi’s History at Eumundi Museum
This is a great stop off and educational too! The recently renovated museum is full of fascinating and engaging artefacts, images and documents that really bring Eumundi’s history to life. Many of the old heritage buildings are still standing, so you can seek them out after your visit and imagine you had gone back in time.
