Barry Potter and the magical Aussie holiday

Magic Shop, Sydney Last Laugh Comedy Club, Melbourne Trapeze Lesson, Sunshine Coast

Wave your wand and transport yourself to a magical holiday, with side splitting laughs and torso splitting tricks. Stash some scarves up your sleeve and stand up for comedy as we raise the curtain on humorous and Houdini holidays across Australia.

Could you be the next Ricky Gervais or Jerry Seinfeld? Jump on stage, or heckle from the back row as the next wave of Aussie comedians compete in Green Faces, with heats in Canberra running every Thursday night from July 2 to September 10. Each evening is hosted by an established comedian such as Jimeoin or Kitty Flanagan.  Relax those aching tummy muscles back at the Quality Hotel Woden. Catch fashionista Bruno at the nearby movie theatre, or try your luck at the pitch and putt golf club for some Caddyshack capers.

Have the last laugh and eat it too with a dinner and show deal at The Last Laugh Comedy Club in Melbourne. Since 1975, this centre for comedy has hosted local and international acts such as Wendy Harmer and David Strassman. Sit back and enjoy the evening’s three-course meal – just don’t choke on your lamb shank when you laugh. Then treat yourself to a late night jacuzzi and sauna at the Somerset Gordon Heights, in the heart of Melbourne City.

Swing into action on a two-hour trapeze workshop near Maroochydore as you, your better half or even a bunch of fearless friends learn the moves to flip and fly with professionals. The fun vibes still running wild, have a rooftop barbeque at the Sebel Maroochydore and splash around in the outdoor swimming pool.

Just how do rabbits stay in hats? Find out on a visit to the Hey Presto Magic Studio in Sydney, who sell magic merchandise and explain all the tricks bought in the store. For more detailed skills, take a lesson and try out some sleight of hand and telepathic predictions. After captivating fellow Copperfields, retreat to a hotel befitting of your magical prowess, The Central Park Hotel, near Hyde Park.
