Rug up and carry on with a program of wintry fun for all. Snow... real snow will arrive into The District Docklands so that visitors can build a snowman or make snow angels, without leaving Melbourne.

The 8m x 8m zone offers a snowtastic experience where you can also snap a selfie with a resident woolly mammoth or take a family portrait next to the giant snow globe.

Alternatively, go crazy with the Snow Slinger and fire off a barrage of virtual snowballs knowing no one will actually get hurt. Enjoy the talents of local sculpture artists who will demonstrate their creative skills with live ice-carving shows.

Lastly, slide into The District Dockland's wintry wonderland, quite literally, as you throw yourselves down the District Ice Slide and hurtle on a tube down the whopping 15m-long slide.

The District Ice Slide runs on a gold coin donation, with collected monies going toward the not-for-profit organisation, Kids Under Cover, which helps combat youth homelessness; winter being a critical time to help those living on the streets.
