A Canadian Themed, Outdoor Ice Skating Rink Is Coming To Melbourne For The First Time Ever

All market shoppers will be invited to get their skates on and join the fun and magical moments of a northern hemisphere Christmas during the first 3 weeks of Melbourne’s unforgiving summer. The rink will be a small and necessary saviour for those who have always dreamed of ice and snow around Christmas time.

The Air Canada Ice Rink will ‘pop-up’ under the Queen Vic Market’s 140 year old historic shed and merge Canada’s famous winter culture with Australia’s festive summer. The rink will offer cool fun for skaters of all ages. Skating sessions will run hourly with skates, helmets, skate aids (and pads for exposed knees) available for hire.

But there will be much more fun on offer off the ice too. With the airline celebrating their expansion of non-stop routes from Melbourne to Vancouver, Air Canada is also offering Melbournians a tempting taste of Canada itself. Rink-side treats will include maple syrup ice cream from the Markets Geloso Galateria, Canada’s legendary poutine (a national treasure of french fries, cheese curds and gravy), plus fairy floss and popcorn for little ones.

Tickets cost $10 for children (under-14’s), $15 for adults, and $45 for a family pass (two adults and two children).
