Marion Ice Rink & Rock Climbing Facility

Adelaide Indoor Play


A proposal from a group of private investors to build an international standard ice rink and rock climbing facility in Marion has been endorsed by the City of Marion with the proposed agreements to go out for public consultation soon.

Ice Rinks Adelaide and the Pelligra Group want to build the $20 million venture on a 10,000sqm site at 262 Sturt Road that they plan to lease from Council for 42-years. The site is owned by Council and is classified as “Community Land” so the intention to lease and subsequent changes to the Community Land Management Plan will go out for public consultation before any formal deal is signed.

Once completed, the arena will boast an international standard ice rink with a seating capacity of up to 450 spectators.

The rink is expected to be the home of South Australia’s Australian Ice Hockey League team, Adelaide Adrenaline, possibly in time for the 2024 season.

The facility is also planned to have international competition rock climbing walls for Sport Climbing, recreational rock climbing and bouldering, themed rock climbing walls for children, a pro shop, kiosk, and children’s play café.

The proposal includes:

  • An international standard ice rink (single sheet)
  • 350-450 spectator capacity
  • Pro shop
  • Sport Climbing – international competition rock climbing walls
  • Recreational rock climbing and bouldering
  • Themed rock climbing walls for children
  • Children’s play café
  • Kiosk/restaurant

These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey 27 May 1967 On this day, Australia’s most successful referendum saw more than 90 per cent of Australians vote to give the Australian Government power to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and recognise them in the Census. 3 June 1992  On this day, the Australian High Court delivered the Mabo decision, the culmination of Eddie Koiki Mabo’s challenge to the legal fiction of ‘terra nullius’ (land belonging to no one) and leading to the legal recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of lands. This decision paved the way for Native Title. The National Reconciliation Week 2022 theme, “Be Brave. Make Change.” is a challenge to all Australians— individuals, families, communities, organisations and government—to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians.
