GET your skates on and head to Elizabeth Quay from June 23 until July 16 for a winter spectacular, including open air ice-skating and falling snow, which also raises money for Variety.

Set against the backdrop of the CBD on one side, with the Swan River on the other and the rink emblazoned with twinkling lights, ‘Skating at Elizabeth Quay’ will be an event to remember.

“There is something completely magical about ice skating whilst in the open air with falling snow dusting your hair – blink and you’ll feel like you’re at the Rockefeller Center in New York or Hyde Park in London ,” entrepreneur Rod Stoller, one of the ‘Skating At’s’ co-owners said.

“With our warm climate in Australia ice skating, particularly in the open air, is not something that most people do all the time, but it’s awesome to try new things and is loads of fun, even if you’re a bit wobbly at first.

“It’s not that difficult really and we have staff on hand to assist novice skaters, plus of course it’s fun to watch others.”

You can kick back with a warm mulled wine or a hot chocolate, or tuck in to some delicious offerings from a wide range of food vendors, cafes and restaurants.

Online ticket prices are $15 for an adult, $10 for a child aged 8-13 years and $4 for a child aged 3-7.

Family passes are also available.

A portion of all ticket sales will go to Variety – the Children’s Charity which supports children and families who are facing challenges through sickness, disadvantage or living with a disability.
