Easter egg hunts

Join the hunt for hidden chocolate eggs – maybe you'll find a golden egg and win a special prize!

Easter egg hunt tickets are included in the price of admission to the farmyard and playground for visits from 6 - 10 April. Tickets for the egg hunt are available 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.
