A Blizzardis coming to Bre!

You may think you’ve seen it all – but you haven’t, because next month you will see people ice skating in the main street of Brewarrina.

In a first for outback NSW, the Brewarrina Shire Council is bringing a fully operational ice-skating rink to town, just in time for the school holidays.

The ‘Brewarrina Blizzard’ event is being run in partnership with the ‘Stars on Ice’ company, which mainly tours bigger communities on the coast.

And apparently, they didn’t need much encouragement to accept Council’s invitation to head west.

Bre Council General Manager, David Kirby, said the Brewarrina Blizzard event will be ‘a real ice-skating experience’ for the whole family to enjoy during school holidays.

“It’s certainly a first for this far inland and it looks like it’s going to be very exciting,” Mr Kirby said.

“Stars on Ice bring all the equipment, the different aids for kids and older adults learning to skate, the skate hire and ice skating trainers to help people learn how to master ice skating.

“The target audience is really anyone from the elderly to babies - anyone can have a go,” he said.

The logistics of the Blizzard are substantial. The company brings an entire refrigeration unit to create an ice surface across a 30 by 20 metre floor space, which will be set up on the tennis courts, to accommodate 100 people at a time on the rink.
