If you're looking for some winter fun during the July school holidays, then head on down to Queencliff Harbour, on the Bellarine Peninsula.

Winter Wonderland will feature an ice-skating rink and toboggan run, with day and evening sessions being held over 17 days. This is a great chance for children and adults alike to enjoy the unique experience of ice skating by the seaside.

Ice skating
The ice skating rink will be located in the main car parking area, under a giant marquee.

Ice Skating sessions start at 10am and are held every hour, on the hour, with the last sessions scheduled for 6pm (Sunday - Thursday) or 8pm (Friday and Saturday). Sessions run for 45 minutes, but you'll need to get there 15 minutes early to get your skates fitted.

Skates are provided (including special skates for young children), and there will be a limited number of helmets available, however, you are welcome to bring your own.

Prices start from $10 from children aged 3-5, $16 for children aged 6-14, and $18 for those aged over 14. Family tickets are available too, and work out to be cheaper if you're a family of 4 with older children.
