Brisbane winters are underwhelming in the frost department, but while the temperature may rarely dip below 10C, we’ve finally got a reason to break out a woolly scarf with the Winter Village coming to town.

Hitting Northshore Hamilton from 3 June to 29 August, the Winter Village is a homage to all things frosty with ice skating, igloo dining and food and drink pop-ups serving up plenty of comfort food to wrap your hands around. There will even be regular snow showers to really bring the winter vibes. 

You’ll be able to secure a private igloo for dining under the stars, with a hefty menu on offer with fried chicken bites, mac 'n' cheese croquettes, dirty fries and chocolate ice cream sandwiches for dessert to warm your bones and soul.

Lace up your skates and voyage around the ice rink which is open to all levels, from never touched the ice to blades of glory stature. We're also pretty keen for the  Brunch & Skate sessions on Saturdays and Sundays, which include 45 minutes of circumnavigating the ice followed by an extended brunch in a private igloo to replenish.

The Winter Village is opening on Thursday 3 June and will be keeping it chilly until Sunday 29 August. For more information, click here.
