Event: -
It's rare to see snow and enjoy it living in Brisbane, but finally the Australian Winter Festival has come to Brisbane for everyone to enjoy.



In the heart of the city at King George Square, from the 9th of June, the public will be able to enjoy the snow, ice-skate on Brisbane's largest outdoor ice skating rink, and also sample warm winter foods from 20 different countries. There will also be the chance to enjoy a night by the woodfire and enjoy steaming chai from the Lipton Chai Latte Lodge. A range of live music will be playing during the winter festival to enhance the atmosphere of this great event.

There will also be an array of ice skating performances on the opening weekend, so bring your family for a night to remember. Although the entry is free, to get in on the action yourself, a small fee for ice skating can be paid, and discounts are available for groups. Remember to quote the word "GROUP" when purchasing 10 tickets online to get 10% off. $20 for adults and $15 for kids is all that's needed to enjoy a whole 45 minutes on the ice. If you don't have skates of your own, it's just $7 to hire them at the event. Due to demand and the popularity of the event, it's best to book your tickets online before they run out.

Don't miss this special event right here in Brisbane city, and bring your family and friends for a great evening in the snow (and if you're really up for it, on the ice).

Comments
Ice-skating is my favorite activity and I feel the entry fee is considerable and it's also good to hear that it is the first winter festival happening in Brisbane. Usually, I travel to different places to attend winter festivity and this is a good and welcoming event for Brisbane people. Cheers!
