Where is it: All over Australia - here in Brisbane it's on at King George Square in the city!
What's it all about: Ice skating in Brisbane? Yes! That's right! Skating At set up pop-up ice skating rinks in many of Australia's cities, and Brisbane doesn't miss out!
Tell me more: Seeing an open ice skating rink here in Brisbane is definitely not an everyday occurrence, so when one does pop-up in the winter holidays, you just know that it's going to be popular! And for good reason - our winter days here in Brissy are generally beautiful and clear and not to cold, and although it may be a bit of a novelty to most of us here, it is so much fun! For those of non-skaters, it's a fantastic activity for the little kids and with a few pointers they will have picked it up and in no time most likely they will have surpassed us parents! So book in ahead - sessions are 45 minutes and include skate hire. For the little guys there are also 'Kanga' skating aids which they can use for support, or sit on and be pushed around - there's also an awesome ramp - the 'Runway' - that you can slide down in a rubber tube (if you're game), and food and drinks available too! Such a fun activity and a fantastic little change from the ordinary!
