Practice lacing your skates, because a cold breeze is brewing and requests to dress up as characters from Frozen on Sydney’s ice rinks are coming. While some of our favourite icy pop-ups are taking a hiatus this winter (except for one setting up at Darling Harbour for the school holidays), permanent rinks have frosted back up for eager skaters.
Make sure you check in before racing on down in your bedazzled unitard – new rules mean you'll likely need to pre-book and/or have your temperature checked before hitting the ice, and spectators are likely to either incite a visitor fee or be barred completely. That said, there's icy fun in Sydney for the whole family to practice their ice skating twirls, double axles and graceful tumbles.
After you've laced off your skates, you can warm up at one of Sydney's best pubs with a fireplace.
