Come and enjoy some time on the ice this winter
Ice skating is a fabulous sport though I would term it more an exciting and fun amusement for many ages. There is nothing nicer than the wind whizzing past you as you skate along!

I used to skate every week when I was at school and the delight of this was doing it under the winter sun and in the open air. Yes, I know you can skate nowadays all year round, however skating in the open was, for me, something both thrilling and electrifying!

At this event, you can now skate in the open!

Skating At Festival is a pop-up ice skating rink which gets set up in iconic and picturesque locations around Australia. This year it will be on between Saturday 23rd June and Sunday 15th July, 2018.

It is a family-friendly event and is ideal for people of all ages and skill levels. Whether you are new to the ice or are an excellent ice skater, Skating At Festival has something for everyone.

Skating At Festival offers an entertainment precinct located on the stunning area just next to the City at Elizabeth Quay. Elizabeth Quay makes for a beautiful, unbeatable backdrop to this winter adventure experience. Skate in the heart of Perth for a once in a lifetime experience!

Skating at Elizabeth Quay also offers delectable food and beverages, winter actives and entertainment. It will be a fun place to be and one where you could go to with family and friends. Why not spoil that special someone with an unusual date night experience!

This pop-up ice rink is only in town for a limited time, so don't miss out on your chance to skate and enjoy yourself. You will also have entertainment, magical lighting and great tunes to make your adventure on ice even greater!

Ice Skating is suitable for ages 2 years and upwards and to aid those children under 5 years, organisers recommend that you rent a Kanga. Kanga is the skate-aid for young children. It will help them balance, or they can glide on his back.

Use a snow tube and hold on for the ice ride of your life! At this slide, you can have races with friends. You will get faster as you go down the slope, or you can just lay back and enjoy the snowflakes through your hair.

"Ready, Set, SNOW!"

Tubes can be rented on site on the day you visit, and are available for children ages 4 and over.

Get some air, and bounce like a Kanga on this inflatable slide! Climb to the peak, then down you go.

The cloud castle is one where you can get ready for bouncing! Get some tips from Kanga, and jump to the clouds or jump as high as the sky!

You will be able to buy scrumptious snacks and hot drinks. There will be plenty of room to sit and escape the hectic pace of life and the "perils of the rink".

You can also organise to have your children's party at this interesting event! You will get group discounts, lunch, entertainment and hours of fun.

The ice rink at "Skating At Festival" will be open rain or shine and it's perfectly safe and fun to skate in both of these conditions, after all, it is a winter activity! However, it is strongly recommended that in rain you wear raincoats and a change of clean dry socks and even though it is winter, sunscreen and hats on sunny days.

The ice is constantly monitored as to the weather, to ensure sessions are safe to proceed. If severe storms or electrical storms take place organisers will cancel the session and advise accordingly. This happens 15 minutes before each session to ensure everyone has a chance to skate and that the most current conditions are being assessed.

Note that ice can be more slippery though due to rain.

Monday to Wednesday : 10 am to 9 pm
Thursday to Friday: 10 am to 11 pm
Saturday: 9 am to 11 pm
Sunday: 9 am to 10 pm

These times should give you ample time to go skating at least several times!
