Slide, Skate and Chill at the Common Man this Winter


As the last of the autumn leaves are blown away by the chilly winter winds, immerse yourself in a magical winter wonderland at South Wharf.

From June 1 to August 31, The Common Man lawn will be transformed into an arctic oasis complete with an undercover riverside ice rink, toboggan slide and chill out zone.

With a rotating range of activities taking place including Discount Mondays, Teach Me Tuesdays, Date Night Thursdays, RnB night Fridays and Funday Sundays, there’s something for everyone.

Keep warm after shredding up the rink with a cocktail, coffee or hot chocolate at the Absolute Vodka & Lavazza Coffee Chill Out Zone or re-fuel with some quintessential winter warmers including Gourmet pies, hots dogs and donuts, and the infamous South Melbourne Market Dims Sims.

Or book a table to dine in at The Common Man restaurant. Rain, hail or shine, the undercover ice rink will be in full swing every day with a range of dinner and drink specials available at the surrounding restaurants. Kick off your skates and enjoy an exclusive dinning offer or add on a $25 dinner voucher with a value of $30 when purchasing your skate session tickets.

Revel in Melbourne’s City views and enjoy all your favourite winter activities within an arm’s reach at Common Man’s slide, skate and chill pop up.
