Canberra will see the best wintry fun for three weeks over June and July.

Located in Garema Place, a fabulous festival including open-air ice-skating with falling snow as well as a super fun real ice slide, a giant blow up slide and jumping castle will see the precinct transformed.

Set against the backdrop of the CBD and with the rink festooned with twinkling lights, SKATING AT GAREMA PLACE CANBERRA will provide residents and visitors with the perfect winter fun experience.

The rink will kick off this Friday 23 June and will be in Garema Place until Sunday 16 July.

The picturesque location and twinkling lights festooned over the rink will provide many an Instagram moment; you can kick back with a warm mulled wine or a hot chocolate and watch the spectacle and also tuck into some delicious offerings from food vendors or nearby restaurants and cafes.


Tickets can be bought at the gate but you can purchase them online in advance to lock in a spot.
