    Decent prices for a lot of fun, always great to head here with friends and it's so close to the train line that it makes the commute easy.

    I'm a huge fan of Macquarie Ice Rink. I have been taking lessons there for 3 terms now, and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The ice is generally in very good condition. There are always a few hooligans on the ice, but I imagine that happens at most places. Great rink!

    I've got to know Macquarie Ice Rink really well over the last 2 years. My daughter started with the holiday "kids camp" morning sessions during the school holidays and then went on do to AussieSkate lessons there every Thursday afternoon. It's a really friendly venue with a great crowd. Some rinks are incredibly noisy but Macquarie isn't, which I like. The ice is well looked after.

    Great location to take your family or your date to or to celebrate your kid's birthday. You get access to the ice rink for two hours and the entry ticket includes skate shoe rental. The rink is located in Macquarie Shopping Centre so mum can go shopping, while the kids are having fun on the ice. Good for beginners. Advice: Bring gloves to protect your fingers when you fall and a second pair of socks for change afterwards.

I've got to know Macquarie Ice Rink really well over the last 2 years. My daughter started with the holiday "kids camp" morning sessions during the school holidays and then went on do to AussieSkate lessons there every Thursday afternoon. It's a really friendly venue with a great crowd. Some rinks are incredibly noisy but Macquarie isn't, which I like. The ice is well looked after. They have some really high end coaches, even for little kids. The centre is just there for coffee and shopping but I wouldn't leave kids there unattended because any skating has some risk. There is a medical centre just two shops away though and they are good with head bumps. We've been there once in 2 years, it's very well placed. With AussieSkate the kids work through levels in groups, in 2 x 5 week terms each school term. You get the 2 hour session including the half hour lesson, and another 1 hour practice session (2nd half of any public session) another time included in the AussieSkate price and we use that every week. My daughter has a bunch of friends there now and it's the highlight of her week. We also go on the weekend, the ice is quieter the first public session of the day with private coaching sessions happening and people practicing. The later sessions are a sea of rental skates and people just having fun or clinging to the side, some kids in onesies, and they usually run limbo in the 2nd hour. Check the timetable online before you go because there are designated 2 hour sessions with half hour ice maintenance in between so you want to get there as a session is starting. In 2 years I haven't seen any fingers sliced off. :-)
