Sydney Winter Festival

13 June -13 July 2014 

Get your skates on and hit the Sydney Winter Festival for some "cool Yule". 

Much missed last year, this enchanting mid-year favourite is back. Darling Harbour’s Tumbalong Park will be transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with outdoor ice rink, floating Lindt Lindor Zorb Balls on the waters of Cockle Bay, an 80ft inflatable snow slide,  alpine huts serving winter warming goodies like bratwurst, gluwhein and roasted chestnuts. 

Plus, festival-goers can expect free festive entertainment, ice-skating performances, ice hockey games, themed nights, charity races, live music and DJs. 

Book ice skating and skate hire online from $28.50.
