Winterland

This event has passed!

Winterland - Ice Skating in the City Perth’s first inner-city outdoor ice skating rink brings you winter on ice.

The Perth Cultural Centre gets seriously cool with Winterland. The upcoming July school holidays is literally the time to get your skates on in the Perth Cultural Centre. Winterland is Perth’s first inner city outdoor ice skating rink and will transform the urban surrounds into a magical winter wonderland.

Catering for kids, parents, grandparents and everyone in between, Winterland offers a truly unique experience in the heart of the city. The James Street Amphitheatre between the State Library and PICA will be converted into a 250sqm outdoor ice skating rink, with a winter themed bar and café and delicious food stall offerings.

There will be a range of family friendly sessions and activities on a daily basis. The 9AM session will be just for the little ones, with aided skating tools for 3 - 5 year olds. From 10AM onwards, the sessions are all ages. After the sun goes down, it’s time for big kids at heart to come out play, with themed nights, DJs and more from 7PM – late.

When not executing the perfect double lutz, patrons can pull up a beanbag and watch some appropriately programmed winter-themed films on the big screen.

And to satisfy those appetites, Winterland is bringing a touch of the traditional Northern Hemisphere winter markets to the city. Food stalls will offer tasty treats such as hot pretzels, bratwurst and ginger cookies. Patrons and the general public can observe all the skating action from The Lodge at Winterland, the bespoke café and bar. The Lodge will be serving a huge range of winter warmers, including mulled wine, warm winter cider, hot chocolate and free babyccinos for skaters under 12. And fear not! Toasty warm fires will keep the winter chill at bay.

From 7PM on Friday and Saturday, The Lodge will be pumping out the tunes, with a range of Perth’s finest DJ’s taking over the decks. Some seriously pun-tastic theme nights are currently in development – think Ice Ice Baby, Sk80’s and Onesie dress codes.

There will be a range of family friendly sessions and activities each day. The 9AM session will be just for the little ones, with aided skating tools for 3 - 5 year olds. From 10AM onwards, the sessions are all ages. After the sun goes down, it’s time for big kids at heart to come out play, with themed nights, DJs and more from 7PM – late.

Winterland will offer a wonderfully unique experience for all to enjoy this July and is one not to be missed.
