Celebrate winter at Westfield Knox
Get a taste of winter fun at Knox shopping centre this Saturday 4 June 2016. Lake Mountain and Mt Baw Baw alpine resorts are transforming an area (find it in Ozone, outside Village Cinema) of the shopping centre into a winter wonderland. Two tonnes of real snow is being brought in, along with a pack of snow loving huskies that belong to the resort's own sled dog tours; the 'Howling Huskies'.
