You may remember this outdoor pop-up from way back in winter 2019 – those sweet old days before a certain you-know-what had Melburnians sheltering in their homes for a dark winter. Thankfully, this winter is looking up with the Winter Village's (faux) snow-covered activation landing back in town from May 13 to August 29.
The Skyline Terrace at Federation Square has been transformed into a free, family-friendly winter wonderland complete with ice skating, food trucks and pop-up bars, as well as a magical igloo village.
There are winter-themed treats perfect for keeping warm, or you can book a private igloo and get a food and beverage package that starts at $49 per person.
The Winter Village is open seven days a week and is free to enter. Ice skating starts at $10 for toddlers, $18 for children and $26 for adults. More info on the website.
