Melbourne's Icehouse at Docklands
Located in the heart of the Docklands, across the road from Harbour Town Shopping Centre, Medibank Icehouse is Australia's largest ice sports and entertainment venue.
The Olympic Winter Institute of Australia (OWIA), which is an official Olympic Training Centre, agreed to relocate its programs and administration to Medibank Icehouse, ensuring Medibank Icehouse’s position as the national centre for ice sports in Australia. Geoff Henke, the Chairman of the OWIA and a former Vice President of the Australian Olympic Committee, was a key supporter throughout the long journey, sharing a vision for a world-class ice sports centre for Melbourne. He was instrumental in assisting ISA to obtain government contribution.
An outstanding and dedicated team of consultants has worked on this project, in many cases for more than 10 years.
Medibank Icehouse was designed by Melbourne based Cox Architects in collaboration with Canadian ice-sports specialist architects, Brisbin Brook Beynon, and international engineers ARUP.
