Opening from Saturday 1st July, kids of all ages can enjoy the starry lights and wintery wonder. It'll also be a trip down memory lane for many adults as Eastland’s ice-skating rink Ringwood was the home of Australia’s first custom-built ice-skating rink, Iceland, which closed its doors in 2005.
The 200 square metre rink will glow with twinkling lights and be surrounded by snow topped trees. It'll also feature music curated especially for skating, skate loan and a viewing/seating area.
One of the world’s most famous stories is being brought to life this summer by Playhouse Pantomimes! Join them on a magical journey through a mystical world in their mesmerising current production of 'Alice in Wonderland.'
Dining out with the kids is not always easy, but it can be even harder trying to find family-friendly options when you are vegetarian, vegan, paleo or gluten free. If you can relate to this, make Plant Based Mum your go-to blog.
