If you’ve been past Aotea Square recently, you may have noticed the appearance of an ice skating rink in the middle of the place.

Well if you head back now, you’ll find that winter has definitely come to Auckland with the arrival of the Snow Dome, presented by Paradise Ice Skating and Auckland Live. Offering a great opportunity for family fun (or to settle family feuds with a snow fight), the Snow Dome will be open for the school holidays from now until July 24th.

It’s 5 meters high and 8 meters wide, with between 3 to 4 cubic meters of snow contained inside, so plenty of room to let loose your inner child (or your actual children)! For more information and the full programme check out the Auckland Live website here.
