A pop-up winter playground is coming to Brisbane

It’s time to rug up.

For the first time ever, The Winter Village is coming to the sunshine state. From Thursday, June 3 until Tuesday, August 29, the Northshore Riverfront Event Site will be transformed into a snowy escape complete with an ice skating rink, igloo village, snow showers and food and drink pop-ups!

Be sure to check out the skate and brunch packages on weekends or book your very own private igloo, and if you’re thinking about getting the whole gang together, why not book a mega igloo for up to 14 people!?

Two food and drink packages are available with your igloo booking: a grazing platter of winter warmers accompanied by a beer or wine and a chocolate ice cream sandwich for dessert, or a premium package that includes additional sweet treats together with espresso martini-flavoured chocolate fudge dipping sauce, as well as the option of an espresso martini or Aperol spritz!

Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro, lace up some skates and get down to the ice skating rink for some winter fun! Ice skating is available in 45-minute sessions and can be pre-booked online.

The village will be open seven days a week and is free to enter. Visit the website to plan your visit and check out The Winter Village Instagram to stay up to date on the frosty festivities!
