Winter isn't usually the most fun time to be outdoors in Melbourne. Sure, it's nice when the local pub starts serving mulled wine in the beer garden, but when your favourite activities include sunny brunches, outdoor cinemas and going to the beach, grey skies and arctic winds are not your friends. But we've found at least one reason to celebrate the chilly weather: a pop-up ice skating rink right in the middle of Fed Square.

Located on River Terrace overlooking the Yarra, River Rink will be open seven days a week, from July 1–23. Open until 8pm Sunday to Wednesday and until 10pm Thursday to Saturday, the rink will be lit up in a multitude of colours at night.

Tickets to River Rink cost $24.50 for adults, and include skate hire. Those of you without much skating experience or general coordination can also hire a plastic penguin and/or seal, which essentially serve as ice skating training wheels. Full disclosure though: you're probably still going to wake up the next day covered in bruises.
