From Insta-worthy moments with GIANT colourful eggs and neon artworks, to hands-on experiences and delicious eats, there’s plenty happening in Ballarat to keep you and your visitors eggcited (sorry, we had to) this Easter long weekend (Friday 7 April – Monday 10 April).
The Easter Bunny has a special delivery for Ballarat this autumn.
From 31 March-16 April, a colourful display of giant Easter eggs and neon lights will pop up in the Sturt Street Gardens.
This Insta-worthy activation will feature 18 larger-than-life eggs, plus 18 neon installations by acclaimed visual artist Carla O’Brien.
Think neon bunnies, Easter eggs and more.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.
These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.
We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.
As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
