Movies, prehistoric dinosaurs, magicians and more - Sunshine Coast Venues have it covered for families these school holidays.

Sunshine Coast Council presents a fun-filled and affordable holiday activity program to entertain the whole family at Lake Kawana Community Centre and Nambour Civic Centre.

Classic movies are back with Nambour Civic Centre screening the all-time favourite The Wizard of Oz. Enjoy the magic of Dorothy and her dog Toto when they find themselves over the rainbow in Munchkin Land and the Emerald City and their adventures trying to get home. This is a movie for the whole family with screenings from 6 to 8 January at 10am. Tickets are $9 and every child will receive a free small bag of yummy popcorn.

Nickleby the Magician will return to Lake Kawana Community Centre to kick off the year with his spectacular magic show on Tuesday 14 January at 1pm. Nickelby and special guests will bring fun and laughs when they perform their illusions and magic tricks. Admission is $15 per person or for groups of eight or more $12 per person.

Join in the latest craze to hit the Coast – Parkour which is the art of using effective and efficient jumps, vaults, climbing and swinging to conquer obstacles. This energetic activity is becoming very popular and Lake Kawana Community Centre has already booked out a workshop on 15 January but names can be placed on a waiting list for proposed extended sessions. This activity is for those aged between 12 and18 years.

Bring your dinosaur-loving youngsters to visit Lakurassic Park (located in the courtyard at Lake Kawana Community Centre) on Thursday 23 January for a fun-filled musical ride through the amazing world of prehistoric reptiles that gets the whole family singing, dancing, laughing and learning with special guest, Jurassic Joe. There will be two shows at 10am and 1pm and the cost is just $8 per person.
