I went on the tram here and I thought skating is easy but my mother said its hard but mum was right and some other friends said they thought it was hard. I was glad to go out to tea. To hard.

Great place to go and watch some ice hockey. Not quite like the NHL but considering this is Australia it's worth watching a game especially if you haven't seen a game before. Even had the Teddy bear toss this year for charity.

I recently re-attended Medibank Icehouse for the ice hockey after not having been a while. The facilities are great and myself and my friends had a great time. I was last there a few years ago and there were quite a few people there having a general ice skate, and it was great to see so many people making use... More

Best ice rink in Australia! I have visited Melbourne twice now just go skating here. Wide open space with very high ceiling. Ice in excellent condition. Large range of opening hours. Two rinks under one roof, & fun to watch activities (ice-hockey, speed-skating) on adjoining rink. FUN FUN :)

Friendly staff, great ice and clean bathrooms. My daughter skated there a few times in the freestyle sessions. Shame that there is no way to buy a hot drink at 6.00am and its a long wait until the cafe opens mid-morning.

This is a fun way to spend a date night! After going out for dinner we went ice skating and it was great! Facilities are clean and plenty of space to skate around. There's 2 rinks and there was a game of ice hockey on the non public rink so that was fun to watch while we were having a... More

In Canberra we have an ice rink and it is good fun but it is a bit dark, cold and dingy. We loved the large, well lit Icehouse with the ice being in great condition and the ambient temperature was pretty comfortable for a skating rink.

My family and I recently drove 2 hours to attend to medibank icehouse "frozen" winter festival as our kids simply adore the movie frozen and we thought it would be a great day out. We arrived with high hopes, only to be let down again... and again. Yes, there was alot of posters, a frozen tent and the odd sing... More

My family and I visited last night and being our first time at the icehouse we had no clue. All the staff were kind and friendly with special mention to Jake who served us initially at the front counter then came passed later to make sure we had everything we needed and to check we were all having fun. Definitely... More

If you are into ice skating I suppose this place is for you. Lots of children and resultant noise. Found the overall experience OK but not all that cheap with entrance fees, skate and learner assist equipment
