Enjoy the school holidays at Chatsworth for a family fun day out in the garden, farmyard and playground. 

Activities are daily, 9 to 24 April, unless otherwise noted, and subject to change if the weather and ground conditions are unsuitable. 

Get crafty

11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm

Get hands-on and creative with spring and Easter crafts in the top yard.

Animal handling

10.30, 12.30pm, 3.30pm

Little adventurers are invited to handle our smaller furry friends and learn more about them.

Animal feeding 

All day

Meet our animals up close and feed them a snack while you're here. Pick up your animal feed bag on entry for a small charge.

Easter egg hunts

15-18 April | Times available on arrival

Join the hunt for hidden chocolate mini eggs – maybe you'll find a golden egg to swap for a bigger one!

Easter egg hunt tickets are included with your admission to the farmyard and playground. Timed tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis and given out when you arrive at the entrance to the farmyard and playground.

Due to wet and muddy ground conditions in the farmyard fields we strongly recommend you wear sturdy footwear for the Easter egg hunts.
