Winter is here and with the cold comes a new Melbourne, a winter wonderland for you to explore and enjoy. If you plan to spend the weekend in Melbourne, leave the car at home, forget rideshare surge pricing and book a taxi to some of Melbourne’s most loved locations with 13cabs and enjoy shelter from Melbourne’s weather.
Docklands Ice skating
Ice skating when Melbourne weather is wet outside is a glorious thing to do. Located in Docklands, O’Brien Icehouse is just a quick cab ride from the city. Ice skating is the perfect activity for a healthy, active and enjoyable day out. Parents and guardians need to make sure they can see their kids and the best way to do that is to join them on the ice. There are a range of fun activities the whole family can enjoy, including the use of skate aids and plastic seals.
There is always a game of footy in winter at the MCG, Australia’s largest sports stadium – and there’s nothing better than chomping on a pie at the footy being warmed by the electric atmosphere generated by footy fans when Melbourne weather is at its’ worst. The easiest way to get to the MCG is to book a taxi to the AFL live with 13cabs. Three 13cabs taxi ranks are located near the MCG:
– In front of Pullman Hotel, corner of Wellington Parade and Clarendon Street in East Melbourne.
– Outside Rod Laver Arena on Olympic Boulevard (previously known as Swan Street).
– Jolimont Terrace.
