New Ice Rink for Townsville!

Townsville is home to the Warrina Ice Skating Rink, a rink one third the size of a normal competition facility. Despite this we have produced national champion skaters, ice hockey and broomball players. Sadly we may soon lose this wonderful facility, the only Ice Skating Rink in Queensland outside of Brisbane. We currently have over 300 people who use the rink weekly to pursue their sporting dreams as well as hundreds of children from the community who enjoy utilising the facility as a place to safely meet with friends and escape the heat of the tropics. We are therefore asking the community to help us get a new skating rink for the Townsville region. The North Queensland Broomball Association, Figure Skating Club and Ice Hockey Associations will be presenting the petition to Local, State and Federal Governments to get funding for a Full Size Ice Rink in Townsville which will be run by these clubs for the benefit of the whole community. If you believe that the people of Townsville should have a full size ice skating facility please sign the petition. HELP KEEP AN ICE RINK IN TOWNSVILLE!!!

  • Helen Raya With a full size ice rink, you could add short track speed skating to your winter sports and hold comps and camps as an alternative to other venues in Australia and therefore attract visitors to Townsville.

  • Stella Hoy I don't live in Townsville, but a good ice-skating rink there would be a good enough reason for me, my family and friends to go to Townsville for holidays.... regularly!

  • Alexandra Sligo Please save the ice rink
