Skate away to disco music at O'Brien Icehouse, a large ice sports and entertainment venue. Centrally located in the heart of the Docklands, the complex has two Olympic-sized ice rinks. Never skated?

  • A fun family afternoon out. Kids thoroughly enjoyed it. The cafe was a disappointment. Nothing on display, dirty used containers everywhere. Nothing ready to eat other then crisps or chocolate bars.  more »
  • Super friendly, accommodating staff. Really made for a great experience with two young kids that had never been iceskating before. Great to see such helpful customer service . Great there was the kids...  more »

  • Wonderful rink but can be very crowded on weekends when birthday parties abound. Bit of an obstacle course at times! Would be good if they had some 'adults only' sessions. Figure skates are pretty blunt but hockey skates (an extra $2 on top of regular skate hire) are generally better, so maybe they get sharpened occasionally. If you're lucky you might get to see figure skaters and ice hockey players on the second rink.
  • A great experience all year round. Jump in and have some fun skating. Lessons available for all ages and skill levels. Come watch the hokey or even celebrate a birthday.
