If you don't want to travel out to Docklands for a skate, you should know that for one more week there's an ice-skating rink open for all in the backstreets of Prahran. After you work up a sweat (and hopefully haven't taken too many knocks), head to the adjacent Traveller bar for a coffee or mulled wine.

The ice-skating rink is located at the Cato Street Car Park in Prahran and runs until August 23; open from Sunday to Thursday 10am to 9pm, and Friday and Saturday from 10am to 10pm. Tickets are $18 (adult) and $10 (child) and available to purchase here.
