With less than a week to go until school is out for winter, have you thought about what you might do to entertain your cherubs? Does the idea of a visit to the snow sound good to you, but you don't like the idea of being rained out? Well then, you need to know about The Big Freeze Festival.



This is Melbourne's first winter festival, which allows families to make the most of the season, without travelling to regional Victoria.

The Big Freeze Festival is a completely indoor event, which provides an affordable snow experience close to home for Melbourne families.

Orchards’ Pick Your Own is back this summer with even more family fun! Children love to pick their own fresh cherries and this year, Monday to Friday entry for children up to 13 years old is FREE!

Real snow, not the plastic stuff!

If you wonder whether you'll need to wear your winter woollies, the answer is yes, please do. While the snow is made from a machine (so is artificial in one sense), it uses the same technology as the machines you find at snow resorts when they need to make snow.
