Family fun events at Snowflakes in Stanthorpe

HOLD onto your beanies because Snowflakes in Stanthorpe is here with a flurry of activities to keep the family busy all weekend.

So you have snow troubles finding an event to suit you, we've compiled a list of the top five attractions to skate on down for.

Snow fields

More than 350 tonnes of ice will transform the massive inside ring into a magical winter wonderland from 9am this morning.

Toboggans will be on offer for children under the age of eight.

Ice skating

Strap on your skates because ice skating is on offer each day from 10.30am until 7pm at the exhibition centre.

A 30 minute session will cost $20 per person.

Igloo building

For the first time, the festival has created a massive indoor igloo making arena within the kids zone at the outdoor ring.

Have fun building the iconic ice houses that can keep people as warm as 32 degrees during sub zero temperatures!

Sled dogs

Sled dogs are an important part of getting from A to B in snow-covered communities!

This weekend, witness the strength and speed of Queensland sled dogs as they power through the outside ring between 9am and 4pm.

Enchanted forest

There are magical surprises around every corner of the Enchanted Forest on the east side of the exhibition centre.

From fairy grottos to bird symposiums, this attraction will be sure to keep the little ones entertained.


Finish your day with a bang! Fireworks displays will be held at 7pm tonight at the Inside Ring.

Tickets for Snowflakes in Stanthorpe are available on the door at the Exhibition Centre at Stanthorpe Showgrounds on High St. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for concession card holders and $10 for children under 15 years old.
