Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!
Event:
Bring back happy childhood memories
What a fabulous idea! Old-school drive-in with a modern twist - I absolutely love it! I have very fond childhood memories of going to our local 'Drive In' with the family, to catch the latest movies.

Aussie World is hosting the all-ages, family movie, The Wizard of Oz and it's literally first in, best parked, with gates opening at 5.30pm and the movie commencing at 6.30pm

Friday night at the movies!


The Wizard of Oz is a timeless musical fantasy, of a young Kansas farm girl, Dorothy, who dreams of a land 'somewhere over the rainbow'. Dorothy's dream comes true when Dorothy (played by Judy Garland), Toto, her ever-faithful dog, and Dorothy's family home are relocated, thanks to a tornado, to a bright and magical world.

Join Dorothy as she sets off along the yellow brick road, accompanied by a scarecrow without a brain, a tin man with no heart and a cowardly lion, to beseech the all-powerful Wizard of Oz to help her to return home.

What COVID-19 measures are in place?

Aussie World's highest priority is the safety and wellbeing of guests. With this in mind, the following measures are in place to ensure guests feel comfortable and safe.

To comply with social distancing, tickets need to be pre-purchased online and scanned on arrival (Aussie World would prefer it if tickets are also pre-printed, before arrival). This prevents unnecessary handling of many mobiles.
Sanitiser stations for visitor's use are all around the venue and at entrances to any buildings
Please bring your own garbage bags to dispose of your own rubbish.
Only members from the same household are allowed to be in each car
Please remain in your own vehicle
Social distancing should be observed in common areas and shared facilities
