Dinosaur Time Machine, 21 and 22 September, one show each day from 1:30pm.

Perfect for girls and boys who love-love-LOVE dinosaurs, Dinosaur Time Machine takes kids back in time to learn about the ancient world of dinosaurs.

Woody's World, 23 September from 11:30am. Tickets: $20.00.

A hit at festivals around the country, Woody's World is the ultimate family experience. Audiences are taken into a charming world of singing and dancing Alley Cats, tea-sipping mice, and more in a show filled with musical number's, stories, and friendly puppets.

If you're looking to relax and between shows, Wonderland's Pop-Up Craft Café will be open daily for the duration of the festival for coffee and snacks like Magic Fairy lemonade, and fun activities like cupcake decorating, and painting also available from the creative activity menu.
