We had a great time at the Icehouse! We visited on Anzac Day so they did a small service including the last post and minutes silence before public skating started, which I thought was lovely. We mad sure we arrived half an hour before a free lesson to give us time to get our skates and helmets, put our bags... More

Medibank icehouse is a great place to skate. The ice is well looked after, the rink is big and the staff are lovely. Unfortunately the entry price is outrageous with no membership type deals available. This is a shame as I'd love to frequent the icehouse every week but as a student I don't really see how it could be... More

I took my 7 year old there during the school holidays; she had a ball. Cost was very reasonable for a single parent and child - only $20. My tip is to make sure you wear thick socks as the skates get very uncomfortable after about an hour or upgrade to the better skates.

We went here on a quiet week day, and enjoyed skating on the regulation size rink with not too many other people. The cost was pretty high for our family of four, but Tuesdays are cheaper. We paid an extra $8.00 for skate upgrades, although my daughter wound up liking the standard skates better than the hockey skates. Free crash... More

I visited Medibank Icehouse on my last night in Melbourne during a trip there in February. While I enjoyed being having the opportunity to go ice skating. Afterwards when I took my socks off I noticed a blister each on the back of my lower calves. The skate boots I was given were the same size as my shoe size.... More

We decided to go ice skating on our trip to Melbourne at the end of November. Coming from Singapore, we're not used to having the option of a "winter" pastime since it is always HOT here. The Icehouse has a small retail area in front, through which you pass into the skating area. There are two different rinks to choose... More

The Icehouse has 2 beautiful rinks for ice skating. One is primarily for the public, the other for sports (ice hockey, speed skating etc). In general the public ice skating is good. On school holidays it can get very busy. Entrance is a bit expensive. Don't forget to take socks if you're hiring!

3 stars because inside is not very well looked after, was no beginner lesson available to my son or me, on our first time skating, Cafe is terrible and so, so expensive. Skates seem bad quality or badly maintained with both of us in pain, as they tipped to the side. Not sure if we will return.

Took our kids for an ice skate, this was also my first experience, it is a great facility and we were well looked after by the staff. it was a little costly, but would still come back, though maybe not as often with the cost. We look forward to our next visit

We visited the ice rink for the first time today with our 7 year old daughter. We asked about the free lesson at the entrance, and when collecting our skates, and were told that it would happen at 2pm, and there would be an announcement. There was no announcement, but we figured we would wait with the other parents over... More
