Egg hunt set to be lots of fun

Vision Australia will conduct Bendigo's annual Easter egg hunt where thousands of chocolate eggs will be hidden among piles of straw.

The Good Friday event is designed for children but this year there is also a hunt for adults.

Vision Australia Bendigo manager Ruth O'Connell expects all 3000 tickets to sell.

"Every year the look on the kids' faces is priceless," she said.

"The excitement that builds as the kids buy their tickets is great."

In previous years there have been thousands of children in attendance.

The festival's inaugural 'adult' Easter egg hunt will be at midday at the cost of $20 per person.

"I don't think the adults will find it as easy as the kids will," Ms O'Connell said.

The hunt times for this year will begin at 9am and go until after 2pm. 

With limited tickets available for each hunt, buying in advance is a good idea.

The event will be in Rosalind Park along with Farmer Darryl's petting zoo, vintage cars and roving entertainment.

All proceeds go to Vision Australia's Bendigo Centre to assist people in the community who are blind or have low vision.
