It turns out Adelaide loves ice skating in winter! We love it so much that there's now two pop up ice rinks around Adelaide all set up to provide a warming winter carnival atmosphere for all ages. Let's not forget our Adelaide icon, the Ice Arena at Thebarton, Adelaide's biggest and oldest ice rink.
