The small igloos can fit up to two to eight people and everyone dining inside an igloo must pre-order and prepay for a package. All the igloos are booked for exclusive use for two hours (with 30-minute breaks in between for their strict cleaning regimes to ensure your safety). There is a minimum of 2 adults per booking.

Wharf Hotel Melbourne Igloo dining kids menu

If you’re dining with kids they can select off the children's menu where every item is $15 and includes a main course and dessert. You can check out the menu here and there are activities on the sheet to keep kids amused (though I'd recommend BYO pens).

The kids enjoy their burgers and the portions are generous. It's a shame that my kids refuse to eat most of the salad!

The Wharf Hotel‘s Igloo Wonderland is open seven days a week, at all times that the hotel is open. Having said that, I think the best time to visit is close to sunset, so that you can appreciate the twinkling lights of the city views.

As there are only a limited number of igloos it’s best to book your igloo ahead of time. If you’d like to make a reservation with kids 12 & under, please call 9810 0097 and their reservation team will gladly help you with your bookings.
