It’s a fact: kids (and lots of grown-ups) love ice skating. It’s great exercise, heaps of fun, and bonus: you can do it rain, hail or shine. There may not be a load of options around for ice skating in Brisbane, but if you’ve got a little Nancy Kerrigan in your house (hopefully not a Tonya Harding), you’ll have to get out to one of these rinks asap.

Iceworld Boondall

You can skate here seven days a week, and there is a coffee skate session on Tuesday mornings, which sounds delightful. Kids as young as three can also enrol in their skate school (and they teach adults too, if you’ve always wanted to learn), and you can have skate parties for kids from the age of four.

Iceworld Acacia Ridge

If you’re a southsider you might want to head along to the southern Iceworld. Just like its northern sister, this Iceworld offers kids’ parties and skate school. Acacia Ridge has coffee skate sessions on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

Skatingat Festival, Brisbane

This one isn’t all-year-round but gosh it’s worth the wait. King George Square is transformed into a winter wonderland with an ice skating rink, magical lighting, music, rides, Kanga skating aids (so little ones can have a go), and lots of great food and drink stalls.
