Skating At St Kilda Festival
21 June – 14 July, 2019
Melbourne winters mightn’t be known for their ice and snow (just yet, anyway), but that doesn’t mean you can’t slide across a frozen surface in the centre of the city. The corner of Acland and Barkly streets will become a winter wonderland thanks to the return of the Skating At St Kilda Festival.
With the event back for another year, all of the frosty fabulousness Melburnians know and love is back, too: ice skating, obviously, but also music, food and more. It’s the next best thing to heading to Europe when Melbourne’s at its iciest.
Entry to the area is free, but you’ll have to pay for all of the fun stuff, with the fest open from 9am–9pm Monday to Wednesday and 9am–10pm Thursday to Sunday. The lineup of events includes not only regular ice skating, but a romance-themed ‘date and skate’ night each Tuesday, plus an ‘Ice Ice Baby’ disco evening every Thursday.
Please note: Skating At Australia regularly has photographers capturing all the action on the ice and there is chance you will be featured. If you are photographed and wish to have the photo removed, please email us and we will be happy to do so immediately.
