Fun at Melbourne's Big Freeze Winter Festival on from July 1 - 9
Frosty Fun Comes To Town
Wander through a magical winter village picture-postcard-style right in the middle of Melbourne, and stroll through the snowball forest during the winter school holidays at this super-fun fest. Toss a snowball, play in the snow pit or shoot down the snow slide before the kids tackle the active challenge, polar bear slide, circus skill workshops, construction zones, and art and craft activities in the igloo zone.
Snow-Capped Tiny Town
We took a peek on the first day it opened, with the kids heading straight for the snow pit for frosty fun! They also loved the inflatable slide and the cute little houses in the snowflake-covered mini town.
Each day between July 1 and 9 has three play sessions, and the Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday afternoon play sessions also include a stage show from 1:30pm – 2:30pm before entry to winter wonderland precinct. Yay!
