How to make the most of Easter in Elsternwick Village

However you choose to spend Easter this year, you’ll find Elsternwick Village is everything it’s cracked up to be and more!

For kids and chocolate lovers alike it’s the hoppiest time of the year – a time when children ransack the garden in search of egg-cellent surprises; when friends and family come together to celebrate with feasts created from the freshest new season produce; a long weekend where we can all legitimately wear bunny ears, relax and have fun.

The joy and egg-citement of Easter is in full swing in Elsternwick Village. Whether you’re planning a backyard barbecue, a next-level Easter egg hunt, or simply some post-chocolate self-care, in Elsternwick Village you’ll find everything you need for a magical and egg-ceptional celebration.

You might even run into the Easter Bunny and his fairy helper, who are taking time out of their busy chocolate egg wrapping schedules to meet all the good eggs of Elsternwick Village.

Meet the Easter Bunny

It’s official – the Easter Bunny is coming to Elsternwick Village!

It’s the Easter Bunny’s busiest time of the year, but he tells us he would never pass up the chance to meet the boys and girls of Elsternwick Village.

The Easter Bunny and his fairy helper will roam Elsternwick Village and hand out chocolate eggs. They’ll also be happy to meet fans and pose for a selfie. Be sure to join us.

Plan your Easter feast

While the chocolate egg remains the dietary staple of many of us over the long weekend, Easter feasts run a close second, with families and friends gathering for meals to celebrate religious and cultural times, or simply to enjoy the wonderful fresh produce of the season.

Elsternwick Village’s Dirito’s Quality Fruits has all the freshest fruit and vegetables for your salads, barbecues, traditional dishes or grazing boards, and Coles has all your baking and cooking essentials.

Head to Peter Da Silva Poultry & Selected Meats for all your Easter meat needs and grab a selection of sweet desserts (including hot cross buns) from Bakers Delight and To Be Frank Bakery, as well as gluten-free options from Glazed Gluten free Patisserie.

Find special Easter gifts

For many, Easter is a time of great cultural or religious significance and is an occasion many like to mark with a special gift, and in Elsternwick Village you’re spoiled for choice.

Ruby’s Gifts offers a wide selection of gifts, and the Avenue Bookstore has a gorgeous book for every friend and family member. There’s something particularly lovely about a living gift, and a potted plant from Green Envy makes a wonderful present.

If you’re visiting a friend at their home this Easter, why not give a gift to brighten their home? Dalgarno’s of Elsternwick has homewares at a price to suit everyone’s budget, Linen House Outlet is stocked with gorgeous homewares and linens, and Society of Merchants is the place to go for stylish, quality homewares and decor.

Enjoy the Easter holidays in Elsternwick Village

A long weekend is the perfect time to forget about work and be in the present with those we love, spending time having fun in Elsternwick Village, one of Melbourne’s most vibrant precincts.

Elsternwick Village comes alive at night, when locals come out to play at one of our eclectic bars and international cuisine restaurants. Why not head down early and catch a movie at the iconic Classic Cinemas?

During the day, the vibe in Elsternwick Village is super chilled and makes it the perfect place to recharge your batteries. Start with a leisurely brunch – head to the popular Mother’s Instinct or Mapleton Kitchen, or for something a little different, try a Japanese-inspired brunch at Dawn Eatery.

Then it’s time to hit the shops! Take in the latest fashion and homewares trends at Elsternwick Village’s top lifestyle stores or set aside a morning to do the op shop trail, starting at one end of Glen Huntly Rd, and exploring all the op shops that dot the shopping precinct.

Afterwards, relax with a treatment at The Reflexology Studio, and catch up on some personal maintenance with a new hairstyle from a local hair salon, or get a mani and pedi at one of the nail salons.

The Easter holiday season is a great time to get started on that new hobby. Take a pottery class at Ceramiques, get some friends together and start on that masterpiece at UpVibes Paint & Sip Studio, or master the art of sewing at Sew This Pattern.

However you choose to spend Easter this year, you’ll find Elsternwick Village is everything it’s cracked up to be and more!
