Keep Warm This Winter In Melbourne’s Pop-Up Igloos

Stay toasty, Melbourne.

It’s no secret that Melbourne’s weather is a little unpredictable – what starts out as a fine-looking day can escalate to what feels like Antarctic blizzard really bloody quick. So if you’re looking a place to escape the winter chill, you’ve found it at The Auburn Hotel’s Winter Igloo Garden. The Melbourne igloos are for sure the best way to enjoy a winter’s night.

Warm up your soul inside the igloos, all of which are kitted out with luxe chairs, cushions, faux-fur throws and candles for an intimate and snug experience.

Best of all, the igloos are totally transparent, meaning you can still enjoy the stunning starry nights without compromising your body temp.

Each of the Melbourne igloos fits up to eight people inside, meaning you can gather the crew, or choose to impress the pants off your partner with what is maybe the cutest and romantic venue in Melbs this winter.

Cosy Up In These Melbourne Igloos

For $40 per person, guests receive their very own igloo, a drink on arrival, a chef’s tasting plate and fondue for two. Or – if you’re keen to go all out – you can totally order of the a la carte menu.
