Bondi Winter Magic Festival

The unique Bondi ice rink is one of Bondi’s most popular attractions during winter, returning better than ever this year. Where else can you skate in sunshine or under the stars whilst listening to the sounds of waves crashing onto the beach? This year will also feature weekend evening performances from Australia champion ice skaters. Bondi Beach will also have the Bondi Eye for the first time, giving visitors a spectacular 360 degree views of Bondi Beach from a 32 metre high ferris wheel. Enjoy soaring high above the iconic Bondi Beach in a glass capsule and away from the chilly sea breeze. WHEN 30 June – 16 July WHERE Bondi Beach Pavillion

Skating at Cathedral Square

Set against the stunning St Mary’s in the magnificent Cathedral Square, Skating At Cathedral Square is a huge open air ice skating rink plus a hugely fun ice slide. With wintery food offerings and a bar overlooking the rink to take in the spectacle and sip on a warm mulled wine (or nice cold beer, or warm hot chocolate), it’s a great day out. Go with kids, with friends or colleagues or take someone special for a unique ‘skate date’ – how romantic ice skating and being dusted with falling snow. Blink and you’ll think you’re in the Rockefeller Centre in New York!

DATES 27 June – 16 July, Cathedral Square
