Brisbane's idea of cooler weather might be much milder than most, but you'll still be able to slide across ice in the centre of the city. From June 16 to July 9, King George Square will become a winter wonderland thanks to the return of the Skating At Brisbane Festival.

Return, you say? It's a case of same event, new name for the event that was previously known as the Winter Festival. Don't worry, all of the frosty fabulousness Brisbanites know, love and won't find anywhere else in the CBD is back: ice skating, ice sliding, rides, music, a market, fake snow, and eating German sausages and strudels included.

It's the next best thing to heading to Europe when it's oh-so-cool, just without the bone-chilling, teeth-chattering cold. And, did we mention that there's gluhwein (aka warm, mulled, spiced wine, aka your new favourite winter drink)? Entry to the area is free, but you'll have to pay for all of the fun stuff, with the fest open from 10am to 8pm Monday to Thursday, 10am to 10pm on Friday and Saturday, and 9am to 8pm on Sundays.
