A trip to the snow not on the cards? Embrace the beauty of winter and get a little bit of gentle exercise at the same time, without leaving the city at the Sydney Winter Festival. Happening in Darling Harbour from 13 June to 13 July, the Winter Festival features an ice-skating rink, a snow slide, après ski lounge, evening entertainment and even a Winter Village Market with delicious wintery food and drinks. What better way to say a big hello to winter than with a cup of tea and an ice skate?
