The synthetic beach and beer garden will also provide the perfect reprieve to watch summer sports (hello Aussie Open) via the big screen.
According to Resimax Group CEO Steve Hooker, festivalgoers can expect a jam-packed schedule of exciting activities and entertainment.
“Our aim with the Kingdom Festival was to create an unmissable event that caters to kids and families from all walks of life. This includes a guest appearance from crowd-favourite, Micky Trickstar, and face painting and balloon artists, Bibi and Cheeky Button,” Steve said.
“Along with some fantastic performances, kids will have a chance to ride a pony and stock up on their favourite showbags.”
On the festival’s last day, Wednesday, January 26, there will also be an Australia Day party with food trucks, live music, pop-up bars and helicopter joy rides.
