Like every year, Sydney Winter Festival was held to celebrate the winter but for the first time ever, the Sydney Winter Festival was held at Darling Harbour. The main attractions of the festival were the ice-skating at an outdoor ice skating rink tasting gourmet winter cuisines from food vendors at the Winter Festival Village, relaxation at the Lounge & Beer Garden with traditional winter refreshments including hot chocolate, Glühwein & a selection of premium European beers.
Last weekend, we decided to experience the chills and thrills of snow and ice skating, ice slides and winter activities normally reserved for our northern hemisphere counterparts, and it was all as easy as making the trip to Darling Harbour.
Here are some of the pics from the day.
Till next time, take care

This was so lovely! I am catching up on your lives and news! The two of you look so sweet together and the beautiful winter festival seems wonderful, too! Glad you tried some winter sports, no one got hurt, right?! Smiles and Hugs, Robin
I am not good on ice but glad we didn’t break anything 🙂
What a beautiful festival! Did you try ice skating? Growing up in Ohio, I used to do all the winter sports and loved them. I could beat all the boys in my school in speed skating races! (There was a pond in back of our school and we always would skate during our lunch recesses.) Have a great week!
You must be great at skating with so much experience. I am not that good but we still enjoy it with lots of fall 🙂
I would love to visit Sydney, but am thankful for these views! Take care and hope all is well with you both! Smiles, Robin
You are always welcome here and I am sure you will love it 🙂

What about in Nepal?
At least you would have experienced something similar while growing up, but here winter is just a concept 🙂
