Get your Summer Skates On

For the first three weeks of December, the Queen Victoria Market will play host to the Air Canada Ice Rink – Melbourne’s first ever summer outdoor ice skating rink.

Those who crave a small taste of a white Christmas experience can hit the ice and show off their moves in a 45-minute session for the small price of $15 (adults), $10 (kids under 14) or a family of four for just $45. Sessions run every hour and can be purchased rink side – though we recommend pre-purchasing tickets online to avoid disappointment.

Canadian-themed treats like maple syrup ice cream and poutine (a delicious concoction of french fries, gravy and cheese curds for the uninitiated) are also available for purchase aside the ice rink as well as popcorn and fairy floss for the kids (and young at heart).

If you are thinking of taking the team from work for a little bit of skating fun, why not pair it with the Wednesday Summer Night markets for a spectacular feed for the perfect work Christmas party with a difference. Groups of ten or more who pre-book via the website get a saving of 10% off skate tickets.

Get your skates on and don’t miss out on this fun twist on Christmas tradition.
