After reviving Melbourne’s beloved winter tradition last year, RISING creates a new ice-skating experience of celestial proportions. Riverside ice skating on a new super sized rink—for seasoned and new ice skaters, of all ages. Skating aides available to help with confidence on the ice. The Rink is sheltered by an open-wall, galactic big top.
Follow the scent of buttery popcorn, hot chocolate and mulled wine towards the glow of the open-walled big top down at Birrarung Marr. Strap in and glide like a galactic gazelle under lights that smoulder like star dust.
The Rink is located in a riverside precinct which features everything you need to keep cozy. Warm up with friends and family around the firepits, tuck into delicious food and sip on drinks for all tastes (alcoholic and non-alcoholic options available).
Entry to the precinct is free and unticketed. Ice skating tickets have exhausted for the 2023 Rink season. Limited tickets may be available at the ticket booth, subject to capacity.
__Open through the winter school holidays until Sat 8 July.
