Easter School Holidays With Kids


Calling all family travellers: Looking for something memorable, fun and affordable to do these Easter holidays? Here are four reasons why Flagstaff Hill in Warrnambool is the place to be.


Autumn Adventures

Autumn Adventures is Flagstaff Hill’s jam packed school holiday program that everyone will love. There are daily activities with a fun, historical twist, whether it’s playing old fashioned games, cooking, woodworking, making your own toys and Easter crafts, re-enacting military drills or travelling back in time to see what school was like in the 19th Century - everyone is in for a treat.


Day on the Hill

Day on the Hill is a great family friendly event held every year on Easter Sunday at Flagstaff Hill. Home to the biggest Easter Egg Hunt on the Great Ocean Road with 10,000 chocolate eggs up for grabs, families can enjoy live music, face painting, a petting zoo, a silent disco, craft activities and a visit from the Easter Bunny. Create your own hat and join the Easter Bonnet Parade through the village and experience the Garrison crew in action and the firing of the mighty 80 pound cannon. Unwind on the village green with a drink from the old fashioned Steam Packet Inn pub and food from the many food offerings around the village.


Tales of the Shipwreck Coast

A Great Ocean Road trip is not complete without experiencing Flagstaff Hill’s Sound and Light Show ‘Tales of the Shipwreck Coast’. Every night at dusk be guided by lantern through the Maritime Village to the Wharf Theatre where you will experience a spectacular display of light projections onto a 9-meter water wall telling stories of the local Indigenous people, Warrnambool’s colourful whaling history and the story of the Loch Ard, the most notorious shipwreck on the Great Ocean Road.
