Winter Festival 2011, Sydney

It’s back again for the third year in a row from the 22 July till 11 August 2011 up outside St Mary’s Cathedral, in Cathedral Square.

Looking across from Hyde Park

If you’re looking for something to do in the evenings it’d be worth checking out, particularly since the food and atmosphere is free!

There are random ice skating/hockey displays, food and 45min ice skating sessions (you must buy a ticket).

St Mary's Cathedral makes a beautiful backdropIt’s probably the closest thing to Australians getting the Northern Hemisphere winter. For a look at all the fun and games that go on check out this link.

For skating tickets go here to book, there are just too many packages and variables!

It’s open 12pm – 10pm on weekdays and 10am till 10pm on weekends! If you aren’t skating you will probably only need and hour or so to take in the atmosphere and have something to eat, as the venue isn’t that large.

Below are some of the foods you can find at the event (not including the Bratwurst, Waffles and Crepes).
