This Event Is

Tickets selling fast
Explore Vaucluse House on an Easter-inspired kids trail.

Try your hand at an “egg-cellent” range of activities inspired by traditional Easter games including egg rolling, egg-and-spoon racing, a chicken hunt (of the non-chocolate variety) and a hot-cross bun ingredient challenge.

Get crafty at our Easter-inspired tinkering station and venture through the house and find the mischievous baby chicks. Meet our feathered friends at the Kindi Farm and explore the kitchen garden – an Easter bunny’s paradise.

When you have finished your trail, you can claim your chocolate treat.

Why not make a day of it and spread out on the lawn and enjoy a home-packed picnic or dine-in at the Vaucluse House Tearooms (we highly recommend reserving a table, as the Tearooms are a popular destination on Easter Sunday).  Please also be aware that takeaway coffee from the Tearooms may take longer than usual. 

For ages 3+.

This event is also taking place at Elizabeth Farm.

Pre-ordered picnic hampers

Pre-ordered picnic hampers are no longer available to purchase. If you have ordered a hamper, an order confirmation and pick up instructions will have been emailed to you by the Vaucluse House Tearooms
