The Big Freeze

With Melbourne’s newest winter festival – The Big Freeze!

While it might be too late to book and save for your winter snow skiing holiday that doesn’t mean the kids have to miss out on their first snow experience. The Big Freeze will launch in 2016 with guaranteed snow and ice fun for families with kids from tots to tweens.

The Big Freeze features a vast arena of activities spread over the Cranbourne Racecourse with a focus on kids staying active, being creative and using their imaginations. A great way to spend time on the school holidays, families can enjoy hours of fun at the festival including a snow pit, snowball toss, winter inflatable slide, snow village & forest, workshops, craft, construction play and more. Held from July 2 -10 the winter school holidays will now give Melbourne families a taste of the snow close to home. 

Founder of the Festival, Anna Brown said the inspiration for the Festival “came from having two young kids and the desire for them to experience the fun of the snow without having to take them to the snow fields. A snow trip can be intimidating and expensive for parents so we are hoping this experience will give them a taste of what good fun it can be.”

New activities are being added in the lead-up to the Festival as more organisations and people want to be involved in this great family activity. Sign-up now for your chance to secure early bird tickets and lots of other great prizes or check them out on Facebook and stay up to date!

The Big Freeze Winter Festival

When: July 2 – 10, 2016
Where: Cranbourne Racecourse, Grant Street Cranbourne 

Tickets: available 

The Big Freeze Winter Festival and Phillip Island Nature Parks have partnered up to provide families with the ultimate winter package of family fun. For one low ticket price, parents will be able to purchase a multi-pass that will gain entry into not one, but five attractions - The Big Freeze Festival, Penguin Parade, Koala Conservation Centre, Churchill Island Heritage Farm and the new Antarctic Journey. 

After visiting The Big Freeze, families can continue onto Phillip Island for a short stay winter getaway. July is a great time to visit the Penguin Parade, as earlier night fall allows for younger children to enjoy watching the penguins waddle up the beach before their bedtime. Take a virtual journey into the Antarctic, including a multimedia experience that will allow you to stand on an ice floe and pat a penguin, stroke a seal or marvel at a whale within arm’s reach. Come face-to-face with koalas in their natural habitat and explore the heritage of Churchill Island, all while experiencing the daily farming activities.

Tickets can be purchased online at online with the five attraction multi-pass only $28 for children aged 2-12 years. Adult passes can be purchased separately at each location. Entrance to the Phillip Island Nature Park attractions is valid from time of purchase until December 25, 2016, so can either be redeemed over the holiday or throughout the remainder of this year.
