Where is it: King George Square, Brisbane CBD
What's it all about: An ice-skating attempt to set a new Australian record!
Tell me more: Brisbane isn’t really the first place that you think of when you think ice skating (especially with the beautiful weather of late!), but Australia’s first ever Winter Olympic gold medallist did train here! We joined a very keen group for an early morning ice skate in Brisbane’s King George Square for an attempt to break the Australian record for the longest ice skating conga line! Yes, we know that this record is a little obscure, but then to a lot of locals here think that ice skating in Brisbane is a bit obscure! But this event was for a great cause – raising money for Variety – the children’s charity and it was heaps of fun – it was the first time our little guys had tried skating and they loved it! And after all that we’re still not too sure if we broke the record – we were having too much fun to take notice!
