Canberra’s Civic Square is set to be transformed into a winter wonderland later this week as the city’s ice skating rink returns.

The open-air rink will open its gates on Friday 1 July, allowing visitors to fully immerse themselves in the cold Canberra winter.

Running until Sunday 17 July, there’ll be plenty of other activities being held as part of this year’s ‘Winter in the City’ program.

You can jump online here to find out more and to book tickets for a session on the ice.
