PSA: Melbourne’s Getting A Snow-Covered Winter Wonderland

By Chelsey Johnston - 19 Jun 2018


Not really planning on getting out of Melbourne this winter? It’s snow problem—this June and July, Docklands is bringing the snow to you.

Winter often gets a bad rap—the cold, the wind, the rains and all that jazz. But this is a silver lining: a pop-up District Docklands winter village, complete with 15m ice slide. If you need that slide in perspective, it's like 50 foot-long Subway sandwiches, stacked end on end. 

The slide will be popping up on 30 June, and running till 15 July. Finally, here's the opportunity to tube down a giant icy ramp, living your childhood toboggan dreams. It's just like riding the Melbourne Star—only colder (and a tad faster). 

If you're worried you might be a bit too cool to ride a slide, remember, every gold coin donation from the ride goes towards helping youth homelessness with Kids Under Cover. You can hog the line guilt-free, knowing each slide goes to a good cause. 

Also, make sure to check out the new 8m x 8m Snow Play Zone (snow angels anyone?), live ice-carving shows and Virtual Reality Snow Slinger. It’s all the fun of snowball fights...without the whole freezing water down your back kind of thing.

Let's kick some ice.
