The Big Freeze Winter Festival

Grey skies, wet weather and cold temperatures aren’t usually a great combination for enjoying the school holidays, but I have a little something on the blog today that may brighten your mood.

The Big Freeze Winter Festival returns to Melbourne during the July school holidays – bringing the snow experience a little closer to home for many families – and you have the chance to WIN a tickets for you and your family.

You might recall that last year that The Big Freeze Winter Festival kindly offered my family the opportunity to visit the event and also provided me with a family pass to give away to one lucky reader of the blog – you can read my review of the festival here.

I’m pleased to say that I’m able to offer the same to another reader of the blog this year!

The Big Freeze Winter Festival is growing in size and has a new home under a big top tent at the Fountain Gate Shopping Centre in 2017.

This year, the festival will be divided into two areas – the ticketed winter precinct featuring snow play, snowball toss, snowfall forest, winter village, snow globe photo booth, polar bear slide, kids’ active challenge, circus skills workshop, art and craft activities, and construction play.

PLUS (what I think my children are most excited about), brand new snow slides at two different heights to allow more children to enjoy a ride!

There will also be a free community precinct open to the general public featuring daily stage shows, activity and sports zone, food vendors and more.

Event details

The Big Freeze Winter Festival runs from 1-9 July 2017 under the big top at Fountain Gate Shopping Centre, corner Princes Hwy and Brechin Drive.

Three sessions are held every day in the ticketed winter precinct (9am-11.30am, 12pm-2.30pm, 3pm-5.30pm), while the community precinct is open from 9am-5.30pm daily.

Tickets to the winter precinct cost $29.50 for children (aged 2-12 years) and $19 for adults, children aged 13-plus years and toddlers aged 12-23 months. Family passes and group bookings are also available, plus there are discounts for some afternoon sessions. As a bonus, each child ticket also include a 4 Park Pass to Phillip Island Nature Parks valued at $28.50. Prices listed are for tickets purchased online.

Entry to the community precinct is free.

  1. I’d love to take my two boys aged 6 & 3 to the big freeze winter festival. I’ve never seen real snow and neither have my kids so it would be amazing to experience our first snow moment together 🙂

  2. Sounds like it will be ideal holiday activity where you are …and I cannot believe we are almost getting to school hols again. Can you tell I am no longer teaching? It never went that fast when I was!

  3. To show my frozen Princesses that there is good and fun to be had in Winter, and to highlight the fact to my Queen too!!!! Wife and daughters hate Winter (the girls had to inherit that from her didn’t they!!!), always on about there being nothing to do. This will fix that quick smart, be a nice surprise for them too as they count down the days to their much loved Summer.

  4. I wish I lived in Melbourne just so I could go! We used to have something similar in Sydney and it was so much fun!

  5. My two children have never seen snow before and always as I don’t have a car and are restricted in a lot of things,My kids have a big fascination with snow they make me buy all the children’s DVDs movies that have something to do with snow always asking me questions of what it’s like,what does it feel like and many more ?

  6. My kids have never been to the snow this would be amazing for them they’re excitement would be memorable

  7. As a Swedish born, Melbourne mum of 2, I often think back to my childhood and especially the happy, snow related memories during the winter months. There was downhill and cross-country skiing teaching me that persistence pays off, toboggan racing on garbage bags and later sore little bums, competitive snowball fights against the neighbours, elaborate sculpture making in the backyard – angels, snowmen and light globes.
    During my 15 years in Australia, I have yet to experience the Australian snow fields. My kids have not yet stood looking up to the sky and felt tiny, soft snowflakes land in small explosions on their warm tongues, giving the amazing freshness and bite only a snowflake can provide. A trip to this Big Freeze Winter Wonderland would be an amazing beginning for me to show them just how beautiful and fun a winter landscape can be, but also how childish their mum can be with a few snowballs up her sleeve. I would be grateful to be considered for the tickets on offer. Thank you.

  8. Would love to take Master 6; Master 3 and miss 11 months to see the big Freeze. They were just watching Steve Jacobs on the weather (at the snow) and complaining we are never going to go to the snow.

  9. I’d love to take my little Frozen fans to see the snow, whenever it is frosty outside my daughter says ‘Elsa has been!’, my son is fascinated with the ice at the supermarket, always wanting to touch it (and eat it) =) I would love to see their faces glow with excitement at seeing THE BIG FREEZE!
