Movie World promises it’ll be an experience like no other, with thematic elements including projection mapping, stunning sculptures and facades as you travel along the yellow brick road.

Locals already know “there’s no place like home” but the attractions will serve as a much-needed boost to the interstate and international tourists flocking back to the city post-covid.

Get your ruby slippers ready, the area is set to open to the public in 2024.
