Our Facilities

The Dunedin Ice Stadium was built in 2004 and is the leading ice sports facility in New Zealand. It replaced the old Dunedin ice rink, ‘The Big Chill’, which closed in 1999. After its closure, the three Dunedin ice sports clubs, Skating, Curling, and Hockey came together to form Ice Sports Dunedin Incorporated and with assistance from numerous individuals and community groups, the new Dunedin Ice Stadium opened in 2004 . The facility now consists of an Olympic sized ice rink, an adjacent four lane curling rink, seating for up to 1000 people, and three function rooms including a commercial kitchen.

Olympic Ice Rink

Our Olympic sized ice rink is a full 60m x 30m and is set up to host international ice hockey, figure skating competitions, and short track speed skating. With a full time professional ice maker, the Dunedin Ice Stadium boasts some of the best ice in the Southern Hemisphere. The ice rink has played host to a number of International Ice Hockey Federation championships, New Zealand Figure Skating nationals, and International Short Track Speed Skating camps.

Curling Rink

The four sheet curling rink was built in 2008 and is used weekly for local club and high school competitions and social groups. It is one of only a handful of dedicated curling surfaces in the Southern Hemisphere and as such attracts international teams for training camps and has hosted both the New Zealand and Australian Nationals as well as the World Senior Championships.
