A magic new skate spot on the banks of Birrarung Marr. Slice up the ice under a deep constellation of lights.

After reviving Melbourne’s beloved winter tradition last year, RISING creates a new ice-skating experience of celestial proportions. Diverge from St Kilda Road onto a river path flanked by fairy-lit elms. Follow the scent of buttery popcorn, hot chocolate and mulled wine towards the glow of the open-walled big top. Lace up and glide like a galactic gazelle under a wild tangle of lights that smoulders like star dust.

Entry to the precinct is free and unticketed. See session details for skating tickets.
