On behalf of MiSociety and SRS Productions, I am thrilled to announce that the Australian Winter Festivals are back for 2011, this year adding Brisbane and Melbourne as a new location amongst the massively successful Sydney and Bondi festivals..
Ice Skating in a Winter Wonderland with friends and family while indulging in gourmet alpine delights from around the globe. The ever popular, aromatic and heart warming gluhwein is here to stay, as well, there is a big schedule of new attractions to wow the crowds.
Party people will be heading out to the Winter Festivals after dark to check out local and international DJ’s perform at the cube and ice bars. For those of you who are more about the winter food experience, you can enjoy watching a celebrity cooking show to learn a thing or two while taking in all the winter ambiance.
