Get your skates on for another awesome winter event in Sydney. The Domain is set to be transformed into a winter wonderland between June 25 and July 18, with a festival showcasing live music, as well as activities for people of all ages.

There will be two spaces to enjoy – The Big Top, which will host performances from Aussie artists and will include family-friendly concerts. You’ll need to buy tickets to each show and you can find information and pricing for those here.

And then there’s the Winterpark, which is in the area surrounding the Big Top. Here you can jump on the family-friendly rides and try out the ice rink.

Rides include a slingshot, a circular swing, a pirate ship, a carousel and dodgem cars. Some rides have age and height restrictions, so check those out before you head along. Ride tickets can be purchased at the Winterpark.
