The Easter Egg Hunt at Coal Creek, 2023

We are hopping with excitement because the Easter Egg Hunt is coming back to Coal Creek!

The Lions Club of Korumburra, in association with Coal Creek, will be holding an Easter Egg hunt on Easter Sunday April 9 between 12.00pm and 3pm.

Tickets are $5 per child.

There will be music, family games, a sausage sizzle, food and drinks for sale, a colouring in competition, and a special appearance by the Easter Bunny.

So everyone gets a fair go, the hunt will be split into 3 categories, areas and degrees of difficulty – under three’s, under seven’s and under 12’s. There are two sessions on the day – one at 12.00pm and one at 1.30pm. Choose which session you want to attend when booking your ticket.

Doors will open at 11.30am for session one.

Book now for a fun, family, festive day! – Get your tickets here!

Easter Egg Hunt basket

Do you have your basket ready for the Easter Egg Hunt?

You’ll be collecting blocks to trade for Easter eggs, and so you’re ready for a hopping good time, here is a basket you can print out (we suggest A3 size) and colour in to collect your blocks in this Sunday. See below for the basket and instructions on how to make it.

If you don’t have a printer, you can draw up your own (don’t forget the tabs!) and do your own decorations.

Carols at the Creek

What a night! Thank you everyone who attended our Carols at the Creek event last Friday evening. We hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did.

Thanks go out to our MC, musicians and singers who shared their wonderful talents with us.

Thanks also to the councillors who attended and our volunteers who assisted in the smooth running of the night. And thanks to our local businesses and across Council departments for going over and above for us.

A big thanks to Santa for taking time of his very busy schedule to say hello.

We look forward to seeing everyone at future events at Coal Creek.

Thanks to Karli Michelle Photography for the many fabulous photos recording this great night.

Special Announcement
This year’s Coal Creek Literary Festival is presenting to a world-wide audience. Instead of the usual one-day festival in October, which has been run at Coal Creek for the past 12 years, this year’s event will be showcased online.

Similar to our 2020 Monthly Author in Focus, and with the support of Coal Creek and South Gippsland Shire, we will be bringing you our Coal Creek Literary Festival 2021 – ‘In Conversation With…’, uploaded to the Coal Creek website, YouTube and Facebook for the public to view and enjoy for the year. The festival committee felt that this decision would bypass any uncertainty re COVID-19, where a lockdown was possible at any time. 

The short story and poetry writing competitions were run in 2021, with entries closing on Friday October 1 . 

The Literary Festival Committee

The 2021 Coal Creek Literary Festival Writing Competitions, comprising the Bert van Bedaf Memorial Short Story Prize and the Open Poetry Prize, have now been judged. Congratulations to the winners, and a big thank you to all of our entrants for your wonderfully creative and often moving stories and poems – you made the judges’ job really difficult!
