Rinky Dink

Tighten your laces and shoot out over the ice at Rinky Dink—RISING’s ice-skating takeover of the Sidney Myer Music Bowl main stage.

Be part of a beloved Melbourne tradition, on hiatus for over two decades. The sounds of skates shaving ice are back, reverberating around the Bowl as young and old whizz, wobble and glide across the rink. And if you’re lucky, you might even hear our Night Chorus belting out ‘80s and ‘90s hits while you’re at it.

You’ll need to sign a waiver before hitting the ice, but skating is appropriate for both new and experienced skaters. Sessions are limited and include entry to The Wilds.

Note: Children under 12 must be accompanied by an ice-skating adult.
