At its best, it's elegant and at its worst... embarrassing, but despite the challenges, there's something about ice skating that makes it a timeless date activity or way to keep the kids occupied on sweltering summer days.

Here’s where to go ice skating in Sydney.

Macquarie Ice Rink

North Ryde

Macquarie Ice Rink has been running for over 40 years in Sydney, so strap yourselves in for all the ice skating fun. Open every day except Christmas Day, this full-size Olympic rink sports Friday night disco skating (with a laser show and smoke machine), Sunday Mega sessions for all-day public skating, and a bunch of cheap-skate sessions, plus a handy skate school. Casual ice skating sessions start at $10 for kids and $19 for adults.

Liverpool Catholic Club

This spot also does ice discos on Friday and Saturday nights, and hosts parties. Casual ice skating sessions start at $11 for children and $13 for adults.

Ice Zoo


If you haven’t been to Alexandria’s famous indoor ice skating rink yet, you’re missing out on a bunch of fun. Ice Zoo is a Sydney staple all year round and it’s open seven days a week with a very convenient licensed cafe. If you’re actually keen to level up your two left feet, you can book learn-to-skate adult classes, but there are also open ice skating sessions for the public and Saturday Disco On Ice parties with live DJs from 6pm until 9pm. Casual ice skating sessions start at $8 for children and $17 for adults.

Canterbury Ice Skating Rink


Beloved by pros and those who need some serious wall support alike, Canterbury Ice Skating Rink is a cut above the rest when it comes to ice skating in Sydney. You can slide around solo, or book in to skate school to learn the basics. This Olympic-size ice skating rink is available to the public six days a week (excluding Mondays). 

Editor's note: Canterbury Ice Skating Rink is currently closed for renovation.

Now, keep warm with Sydney's best Sunday roasts.
