The Easter highlight, on the Eurobodalla’s Nature Coast is the Tilba Easter Festival. A unique festival, with entertainment & activities to suit all tastes, including Town Criers, hilarious street games with prizes, live music on 4 different stages, roaming street performers, Producers hall showcasing local produce, market stalls & delicious food.
This all happens in the magical setting of Central Tilba’s main street and its 100 year old, colourful weather board buildings. The entire village, and surrounding lush volcanic farmland rolling down to the ocean, have been protected by the National Trust. Beautiful Mt Dromedary or “Gulaga – the Mother Mountain” towers up 800 metres behind the village, and is widely known for its pristine rain forests and aboriginal sacred sites.
Easter Saturday is the one day each year when Bate Street is closed to traffic and open to a huge array of culture and festivities. A modest donation ($10-adults, Free Entry for kids under 16) covers all the entertainment, all day long! The festival is proud to be a volunteer non-profit community project, completely free of corporate sponsorship, and dedicated to a day of fun for everyone who attends.
There will be stilt walkers, buskers, street theatre and a continuous reptile awareness show. There will be Jumping castles, airbrush tattoos & face painting. Don’t forget to try your hand at the new Cheese Rolling Competition, the treacherous Egg Throwing Championship, the Bushies Boot Throwing Contest or one of the other many games & activities.
