Mandurah’s first Winter Wonderland opens its doors | Photos

Mandurah’s winter lovers took to the foreshore on Friday morning to put the ice skates on and celebrate the opening of the city’s first Winter Wonderland.

City of Mandurah mayor Marina Vergone, councillors Lynn Rodgers and Caroline Knight and Shape Mandurah’s David Snyder and Candice Di Prinzio took to the ice for the occasion with a little help from the penguin stabilisers. 

The festival, which will be on until the end of August, features an ice-skating rink, a boho chic cabin bar by Flic’s Kitchen, pop-up food and drink stalls, themed nights, a children play area and live performances.

The initiative was created by local business owners, Shape Mandurah and the City of Mandurah in a bid to bring traffic to the local businesses on Mandurah Terrace during the winter months and to inject some life into the foreshore area.
