One of the best ways to celebrate winter is to spend a chilly day spinning around an ice skating rink. From July 6–22, St Leonards Park will transform into Winterland North Sydney with ice-centric amusement and carnival rides for all.
Ice skating sessions are run hourly each day, giving you 45 minutes to show off your skills in the rink. On Saturdays, you can watch ice show performances at 6.45pm and enjoy ice hockey demonstrations on Sundays at 3.45pm. There'll also be a chance to go tobogganing down a snow-covered slide (with three rides for $10).
If you need a break from the ice, step in line for carnival attractions, like a scenic ferris wheel, or go to the food village for some hot chocolate and other cosy creations. Festivities will kick off with an ice show and other entertainment at 7pm on Friday, July 6.
