On Sunday night there is a night time Easter egg hunt by torchlight between 7pm and 9pm; bring your own torch and bring the whole family for a hilarious night out. The Easter bunny will be found running around hiding around 30,000 eggs throughout the 4 days in the maze, and the mission is to find the bunny, find the eggs, and then find your way out of the 6 hectare or 8 kms of paths in the maze.
During the average 50 minutes in the maze you will come upon more than 100 kernels of knowledge, or trivia signs giving you an insight into Wild Animals, the theme of this years maze. These signs will also have colourful Easter egg pictures attached to them. Match the post numbers with the pictures on the game sheet and claim even more Easter eggs. A quiz can also be completed about wild animals to fill in the time while being happily lost. This is wonderful Easter weekend entertainment for all family members. You can also purchase some pretty exciting Easter Baskets to collect your eggs.
