a special Easter tradition throughout central and northern Croatia – making Easter
Nests. On the afternoon or eve of Easter Saturday children go out into the garden and collect
leaves, grass, twigs, with which to make a “nest” for the Easter Bunny – that’s
where he places his Easter-Egg-Presents. The children go to bed that eve wondering if the Easter Bunny
will like or love their nest, because the best nest gets the best and biggest
is based on this idea where an author’s ‘pitch’ is the nest and the Easter
Treats are the Agents (SECRET BUNNY AGENT) requests. Why Croatian I hear you ask? Simple the Host
Nikola Vukoja was born in Croatia.
as Nikola was raised in Australia, she couldn’t help but bring a little Aussie
into the fold… more on that later.

Bunyip? Well here’s a little bit more of
that Aussie influence. Bunyips are
mythical creatures who live around billabongs (ponds). They are very shy and secretive, a little

the Bunyips are because, frankly, we’re not sure they’re real…
