Looking for a unique 4X4 adventure this Easter holiday? The Eldee Family Easter Festival ticks that box
The Eldee Easter Festival will be running again this year, thanks to the Eldee Station’s fourth generation owners Naomi and Stephen Schmidt. The station was converted from a sheep and cattle station into a tourism operation 17 years ago, due to a slump in wool prices, and has been growing ever since. Easter is the perfect time to get away from the city and go camping, with public holidays either side of your weekend, not to mention that this year ANZAC Day provides the following Thursday off – so why wouldn’t you go bush?
The festival is on from April 19 to 22 and has numerous activities for the whole family to participate in, such as 4WD challenges and tours where you get to see the amazing landscape the Eldee Station is famous for, and a show and shine competition with multiple categories to see how your 4X4 stacks up. If driving events aren’t your be-all-and-end-all, there will be trivia, camp oven cooking, and even a bouncy castle and an Easter egg hunt for the kids.
There will be entertainment on hand with a communal fire each night, and singer Don Costa will be performing on the Sunday night. You can register as either a competitor, a participant in the 4WD challenges, or as a spectator there to relax and enjoy your long weekend. Eldee Station also ensures you won’t be roughing it too much, with their fully licensed restaurant offering affordable breakfast, lunch, dinner, as well as takeaway if you’d prefer to eat back at your campsite. They also have a plunge pool and a spa to help ensure you relax. So if you want a unique way of getting away this Easter, make sure you register before April 13 comes around.
