If you are one of those people who love Winter, we have something for the inner child in you. Right in the centre of Melbourne, you will find a Winter Village experience unlike any other. Admire Melbourne’s skyline while immersing yourself in a winter wonderland.  

In amongst the snow-covered pine trees, there’s an ice skating rink, 21 private igloos that you can book, and a mega igloo dining and drinking hall that has hourly snowfall. There will also be local DJ’s, pop up bars and even an ugly Christmas sweater party.  There’s almost no need to leave the city to experience the best of winter this year.

“..The main focus was for us was to create a food and beverage experience that was as memorable as the activation itself. Food and beverage is key to delivering on The Winter Village experience Skate Sip Feast Play.”  Says Australian Venue Co.’s Divisional Area Manager, Ben Anderson.

Sip & Feast

You can place food orders via mobile with QR codes, the menu has photos of every dish. The menu is also translatable in 10 languages and filterable via dietary requirements. You can feast on hot salt and vinegar fries, and the 6 vegetarian pizzas can be made vegan.

For dessert, we recommend that you order a vegan Eskimo pie filled with dark chocolate truffle frozen dessert by Go Vegan Desserts. Featured at the Sip bar you can quench your thirst with beer on tap, hot and cold cocktails and local wines.
