With the kids now settled back at school, it's hard to believe the next round of school holidays is just around the corner - and it's around that time that mums, dads and grandparents alike begin to think about how to keep their young ones entertained during the cold and often rainy school holidays- and what better place than 7 days of non-stop fun, all indoors!

Inducted into the Australian Tourism Hall of Fame in 2008 and recently winning the award for Best Festival and Event at the 2015 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards and 2015 RACV Victorian Tourism Awards - the 2.5 acre indoor festival site offers 18 amazing zones full of awesome activities, two performance stages with 80+ live shows and loads of hands-on activities and workshops.

Targeted towards families with children aged up to 12 years old, this festival aims to ignite imagination and spark creativity amongst kids. The multi-award winning festival will be delivering a fresh line up of spectacular entertainment and inspiring activities designed to capture the imagination of both young and old- including Wash your kids in orange juice with Peter Combe, Live & Learn the Jedi Way by Sons of Obiwan Lightsaber Academy, Taylor Made: A Tribute to Taylor Swift, Galloping Tales and Phly Crew.

Discounted family passes are also available and children under two years of age are free. All activities, performances and workshops are included in the price of the entry fee.

The coastal family destination of Warrnambool is a family hot spot on the Great Ocean Road and is one of the best family friendly regions of Victoria- perfect for these school holidays. The festival forms an integral component of community engagement and brings together different elements of the local community, with visitors flocking to Warrnambool in search of a relaxed and family oriented environment.
