What To Expect At The Melbourne Ice Bar

Upon arrival to Melbourne Ice Bar, you’ll get rugged up in boots (if you’re wearing sandals) as well as a fur-lined poncho to keep you warm. You’ll have to put all your belongings in a locker as you’re not allowed to take them in with you.

Enter through the fridge-type door and into the one and only, IceBar Melbourne. In the bar, you’ll be welcomed by several ice sculptures, an ice hockey table as well as several ice thrones. Head up to the Ice Bar and explore the detailed cocktail menu, order your drink and enjoy the atmosphere.

Feeling a little more adventurous? Take a shot from the ice sculpture and have your photo taken at the same time.

Chill out, enjoy the environment, play some of the games and take part in having several pictures taken for the memories. Sooner or later you’ll start feeling a little cold so either brave it out and have another drink or head out and admire some of the pictures you’ve had taken.

Melbourne Ice Bar is such a unique experience and definitely something worth checking out. Especially if it’s a hot day, cool down in the best way possible here at the Melbourne Ice Bar.

Mid Range: Miami Hotel Melbourne

Located in West Melbourne and within walking distance to the city center, Miami Hotel makes for the perfect mid-range accommodation in Melbourne. With small, compact rooms, equipped with a kitchenette, private bathrooms, and wifi, this hotel is great value for money. Perfect for couples, traveling friends, and families.





Budget: Discovery Parks

This one is perfect for those on a budget, whether you’re a backpacker, couple or solo traveler. If you’re traveling in a van, this accommodation option is perfect for you. Discovery Parks campground, located in Braybrook, North-West of the city has to be one of the nicest campgrounds around. With heated, clean toilets and shower rooms, wifi and swimming pool. If you’re not traveling in a van, book into one of their many cabins. A little more expensive than the campsites but still well worth the money and you still get to make use of the incredible features. This accommodation is a little further out of the city so either jump on the train or take a taxi.
