Easter in Australia does not differentiate much from Easter elsewhere in the world, except for one thing: the Easter bunny. Although bunnies are loved animals everywhere on the planet, that is not the case in Australia.

Rabbits have become a problem ever since their arrival. They first stepped on the new continent with the historic first fleet of ships which made the first European settlements around Sydney, and within decades became infamous invasive pests. Rapidly growing in numbers, the rabbits have devastated lands and were the reason for numerous extinct native Australian species.
