Winter is coming! And to ring in the chilly season, we are transforming into a spectacular Winter Utopia, complete with a program packed full of exciting activities guaranteed to entertain kids – big and small, throughout Winter.

For a truly magical Winter experience, get ready for Snow Play! Melbourne might be known for four seasons in one day, but at this interactive snowscape at The District Docklands we can confirm there will actually be snow. The 8m x 8m zone is the perfect place to build your very own snowman and make snow angels without even leaving town!

Plus, you can take a selfie with the resident Woolly Mammoth or a family portrait next to the giant snow globe.

If you really want to create a little virtual mayhem, try your hand at the Snow Slinger – a chance to fling a barrage of virtual snowballs completely mess free!

And for the artistic at heart, the thrilling live ice-carving shows are not to be missed!

So, grab your beanies, scarves and gloves and make your way down to The District Docklands this Winter for snowfields of fun!
