Kids craft classes, an Easter treasure hunt, Mad Hatter hats, great live music, fabulous food and serious retail therapy.

Visitors to The Original Eumundi Markets are in for a great time in the upcoming Easter school holidays.

Market Manager Peter Homan says Easter Saturday April 23 will be an exciting day at Eumundi Markets, with the annual Easter treasure hunt from 8am for children visiting Eumundi Markets.

"The treasure hunt is open to the first 300 kids who register at the market office on the day," says Peter.

"Treasure hunters be given clues and they'll find the answers as they wander through the markets under the trees," he says. "When they complete their journey, they'll each receive a delicious handmade chocolate bilby."

To take the Easter theme one step further, members of the public and market stallholders are invited to wear weird and wonderfully decorated hats. An Easter bonnet parade with a Mad Hatter twist!  The wearers of the best hats seen at the markets on Easter Saturday will win a special two night package at The Beach Retreat Coolum valued at $250.

Crafty kids visiting Eumundi Markets over the school holidays will also have the opportunity to get creative by taking part in kids craft workshops on Saturday 16 April, Wednesday 20 April and Saturday 23 April.

The workshops are being led by local craft queen and ceramic artist Merrie Tomkins. While the workshops are designed for children, big kids (teenagers and adults) are welcome to take part too -- if spaces permit. Children under five must be accompanied by a carer -- to help them with the tricky bits!

"Merrie teaches people how to paint their own ceramics -- funky pots and plates, piggy banks, and more," Peter says. "She will have egg cups for Easter, and a range of options for those wanting to make a personalised gift."

Eumundi Markets is renowned as the best art and craft market in Australia -- where you can meet the artists and the makers face-to-face. Discover something different, something special, something handmade at our magical outdoor gallery under the trees.
