Thousands of free Easter eggs on Quail Island at Easter

Thousands of free Easter eggs up for grabs on Quail Island at Easter

10 April 2014

Quail Island will once again be busy with keen chocolate egg hunters over the Easter weekend as Black Cat Cruises runs its annual Easter Egg hunt for the fifth time on the island.

It has become a local tradition for the tourism operator to give away thousands of Easter eggs as part of an Easter egg hunt on the Lyttelton Harbour Island every Easter holidays.

“It started off with us just taking 300 passengers over to Quail Island for the Easter egg hunt; now we fill each boat and will carry 1,200 passengers over to Quail Island on the Easter weekend,” Black Cat Group Cruises Sales & Marketing Manager Natasha Lombart said. “It’s been a sell out event the last few years so we urge people to buy in advance and avoid the disappointment of missing out.”

Lombart said Black Cat Cruises have over three thousand eggs and four giant chocolate bunnies, one for each day, to give away over the Easter weekend.

Keen Easter egg hunters will have to find three different coloured tokens in order to receive the maximum quota of Easter Eggs. They need to also find a golden stone to win a giant Easter Bunny.

Quail Island is only a 15 minute ride by ferry from Lyttelton Harbour. On board the ferry passengers will be given a map of the Island and an outline of the hunt for Easter eggs.

“It takes around two hours to walk the whole island and it’s a great time out with family and friends searching the island for the coloured tokens which you will then exchange for the Easter Eggs,” she said.

“While hunting for the eggs you also discover secluded beaches, native birds, volcanic cliffs and even ship wrecks.”

The Easter Egg hunt is operating from Friday 18th April through to Monday the 21st of April and Lombart suggested it was also important to take warm clothes and sensible walking shoes.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
