Winter has arrived and you're looking for something a little bit different to entertain the kids over the winter school holidays. Sydney's temperate climate doesn't provide too many opportunities for true winter sports but this winter ice rinks are popping up around Sydney at some very unlikely spots. So get the kids out from behind their computers and get them pulling on some skates instead, as well as enjoying the kind of wintry activities that people in other parts of the world take for granted.

Parramatta Winterlight Ice Rink

The Parramatta Winterlight Festival will bring all the fun of an alpine village to Parramatta these winter school holidays, and its crowning glory is the Parramatta Winterlight Ice Rink
