Shake off those winter blues because Mandurah is set to transform into a winter wonderland again for 2019 and this year, it is bigger and better than ever!
As part of the Let's Do Winter program full of fun winter activities, the City of Mandurah is supporting a variety of events across the city centre during July and August, showcasing local restaurants, cafes, venues and the foreshore.
Mayor Rhys Williams said traditionally winter is a time people generally stay indoors.
"This year I am encouraging everyone to get outside and enjoy our amazing city," he said.
"Mandurah is no longer a sleepy town - it's a vibrant city with more events throughout winter than ever before.
"Bring your family and friends and go ice skating or do the 30m toboggan slide while overlooking the estuary, grab a bite to eat, or stop by at one of our pop up venues."
To kick things off, the car park on the Eastern Foreshore will be turned into a 25 metre ice rink and pop-up cabin bar from June 29-July 21, between 10am and 8pm each day, for the Winter Wonderland festival.
Now in its third year, the winter-themed mini festival offers attendees a real ice-skating experience in an authentic and fully undercover rink, bigger than last year and suitable for all abilities.

Ice-skating sessions, which are capped at 45 minutes, will run on the hour, every hour with peak and off peak opening hours and include skate hire.
If skating isn't your cup of tea, take a slide down the Runway on a snow tube for the ice ride of your life, ava-launch yourself down the Powder Peak inflatable slide and get some air or bounce around in the Cloud Castle jumping castle.
Skating At director Rod Stoller said it was set to be another impressive winter for local ice kings and queens.
"We're excited to be bringing Skating At back to beautiful locations around Australia, including at Mandurah," he said.
"The event is family-friendly, but something to be enjoyed by all. It's the perfect way to make the most of the colder months."

After working up an appetite, there will be plenty of delicious food and drinks on offer alongisde the rink at Flic's Kitchen's Cabin Bar.
With all the winter warmers you could possibly desire, the Bar will also host a number of fun events including comedy nights and drag queen performances throughout the festival.
There are also plenty of other fun Let's Do Winter events throughout the chillier months to revel in the magic of winter.
Held every second Tuesday throughout July and August, 'Secret Sounds of the City' will be hosted by a number of local artists at five top secret venues.
Tickets will be available online for $10 with the details of the venue released to attendees on the day of the event.
The aim of the event is to offer community members the chance to visit a lesser-known venue they wouldn't normally go to and work with local artists.
There will also be free performances by Mandurah musicians at Beat Box - a large purple sea container with a stage set to be installed on the Eastern Foreshore.
