Walk into the depths of the dark forest and discover fantastic beasts and iconic Wizarding World™ moments. In April 2024 The Briars’ bushland trail will be transformed into the Harry Potter™: A Forbidden Forest Experience.
Follow the lights on this bushland trail and get ready to be transported into the Forbidden Forest. Say hello to friendly centaurs, creep amongst mischievous nifflers and bow to a hippogriff, as the characters from the Wizarding World™ come to life. Keep your wand ready, as you might need to cast a spell or summon a Patronus to get out of the forest safely!
Created by Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment and award-winning theatrical designers, this event will allow you to experience the sounds, lights and characters that make the Harry Potter™ and Fantastic Beast™ series so memorable. As you walk along the trail you’ll encounter magical creatures, interactive moments and illuminated characters. Relive iconic scenes from the movies, and take plenty of fun photos to capture magical memories from the evening’s adventure.
End off your visit at the cozy Village Market, where you can enjoy a variety of classic British treats, as well as a gift shop with themed merchandise. Walk among the starlit stalls and discuss your forest adventure over a glass of mulled wine or Butterbeer™.
Harry Potter™: A Forbidden Forest Experience has already enchanted guests in the United Kingdom, United States, and Europe, and is heading to Australia for the very first time with the arrival of Melbourne’s bushland trail. Thousands of visitors have entered the Forest in all its magical guises, and the reviews have been glowing, with visitors proclaiming it to be “A magical evening, very atmospheric” and “A must for Potterheads“. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen the films though, as the enchanting mix of lights, woodlands, and theatrics have left guests remarking that “Even non-Harry Potter fans can find magic in the walk!“.
Whether you’re a fan of the Wizarding World or just seeking an added touch of magic this year, Harry Potter™: A Forbidden Forest Experience is a must-see. Ideal for the entire family, and open to wizards, witches, and Muggles™ of all ages. Tickets are now on sale, and we’d suggest you get them soon to ensure your spot on this exciting Forbidden Forest adventure.
