Walking In a Winter Wonderland: C&G’s Guide to Winter Events to Beat the Chill


St Kilda Ice Rink

Get your skates on and head to the St Kilda Winter Garden ice rink! As part of Map 57 – St Kilda’s annual winter festival – the ice rink will run from June 15 - July 30. Suitable for all ages and abilities, it’s the perfect way to embrace the cold, rug up warm and throw some shapes on the ice.


Christmas in July Dinner

Following in the footsteps of our northern hemisphere cousins, Christmas in July is the Aussie excuse to guzzle mulled wine and give yorkshire puddings a try. Celebrate Christmas in the cold and make like the Brits at some of these Christmas in July venues, each serving up a festive feast worthy of a spot in your winter social calendar.


Moving Into Stillness - A Winter Retreat

Take it slow this winter at this Brighton retreat designed to calm your soul. The nourishing one day workshop will explore our connections with ourselves, with winter and with yoga. Held at Brighton Grammar Wellness Space, attendees will enjoy an Ayurvedic lunch and a day filled with meditation, yoga and much needed recentering.


Mulled Wine and Conversation

Is there anything more festive than a steaming hot mug of mulled wine? Enjoy the warmth and spices over meaningful conversations at The Journey of Real Talk session on July 11. Aiming to stimulate real, meaningful exchanges and banish soulless small talk, the session provides an opportunity to connect with words on adventurous topics that’ll stimulate your mind.


Luna Park’s Winter Feast

Share a festive family-style meal at Luna Park’s Winter Feast on selected weekends in July, and fill your boots with classic catering and nostalgic celebrations. Your ticket includes a buffet feast, drink on arrival and unlimited access to the rides within the park.
