Wintervention 2019

As Canberra braces itself for a frosty winter in 2019, we are staging another Wintervention. There’s no need to spend winter indoors when Canberra’s only open-air ice rink returns to Civic from Friday 5 July to Sunday 21 July. More than just skating – Wintervention will be bursting with activities including markets, ice shows, a life-size snow globe and live entertainment for all ages to enjoy.
