Get your skates on
Get your skates on, a winter wonderland is coming to Eynesbury.

Get the family together, or bring your best mates, bundle up and take a spin on the ice rink. Enjoy the entertainment, great food and a cup of hot cocoa at Eynesbury's inaugural Winter Festival starting from June 25.

It's the perfect event day out for families of all ages, couples and locals alike.

A range of free winter events will take place at the Eynesbury homestead all the way into July to celebrate all things winter. Parking is available on site, catering to visitors from Melbourne and beyond.

Resimax Group CEO, Steve Hooker said the month-long celebration was part of Eynesbury's ongoing commitment to creating a calendar of events for residents to enjoy and showcase their vibrant community to visitors across Victoria.

"There's nothing we love more than bringing people together for a celebration," Steve says. "Grab the family and pull on some ice skates as you immerse yourself in a true winter wonderland. This is going to be a great festival of events that'll warm up even the chilliest of fingertips."

Bundle up and head to the Eynesbury Winterfest.

A special-built ice-skating rink will be the centrepiece of the festival, allowing locals and visitors alike to book in a time slot for a whirl around the ice. Bring your own skates or hire on the day. Ice skating sessions start at $11 for kids bringing their own skates, and up to $24 for adults needing to hire.

The festival will feature so much more than an ice rink with mini winter events running all month long month, including romantic 'skate and date and funky R'n'B skate nights under the stars, special movie nights, appearances from special guests, and a special winter arts and craft market featuring a variety of stalls and entertainment.

One particular event on July 10th will highlight the Winter Solstice where the entire precinct will burst into colour with a brilliant ten minute fireworks display.

Visit the website to check out the range of events including food trucks, fire performers, African drummers, a bonfire and a marshmallow toasting pit.

There has never been a better time for Eynesbury's residents to come together and celebrate the wonderful place they call home.
