About Us

Main and Practice Rinks

Rollerway in Newtown, Geelong, is one of Australia’s longest operating skate centres, having first opened as a roller-skating rink in 1975.  Several name changes and a few owners later, the current management arrived in 1993, and Rollerway Newtown was reborn.

It’s one of Australia’s most successful inline and roller skating rinks, used by tens of thousands of people every year, and is still a leading birthday party venue, also has a comprehensive skate & hockey shop, while boasting Australia’s premier Inline Roller Hockey Development Program for boys & girls.

In 2018, our Skate Park was replaced by the new Party, Practice & Play area, which complements and expands on the possibilities offered by the main rink and the other amenities (now with two rinks and two snack bars – more below).

Rollerway has public and private General Skating Sessions, Recreational and Competitive In-line Hockey, Skill & Fitness Development Classes, and Specialist Training Programs. When it comes to sporting activities, Rollerway has more teams playing out of the Centre than any of the State Leagues, and probably more than ALL the State Leagues combined!

Rollerway, is a Division of the Allied Group of Companies (Allied Management P/L & Allied Health & Safety P/L) a Geelong family owned and based group, with a well established trading record.

Come and see the Centre’s new Party, Practice & Play area, which has a self-contained training rink for beginners, a new snack bar, and an expanded birthday party area, with a few extra amenities.

We have always tried to remain, kid friendly, family friendly and, well…just plain friendly!  Soon, we hope to be Carbon Neutral, with the addition of our own solar power generation, and our active recycling program.

School & Public Holidays

During public school holidays,
and for most public holidays, we have extra skating sessions, Monday to Friday, in addition to the weekend times – under normal circumstances.  We open for the Gazetted School Holidays, only.  Apologies to our private or religious school friends, but that can mean that we are not open to the public on some days you are still on holidays.

That also applies to Geelong & Melbourne Cup, as they are not considered “school holidays.” In other words, we do not open for general skating on either cup day, but we do have school bookings and our usual roller hockey leagues running those days.

We also close from Christmas Eve through to Boxing Day (24 Dec-26 Dec) inclusive, and we are closed both New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day.

We do open:

  • Australia Day (normal school holiday day times; if it falls on a Fri or Sat, normal evening times, also)
  • Labour Day (12:00-4:30pm)
  • Good Friday (6:00-9:00pm only — no day session)
  • Easter Saturday (normal public times, but no skate lessons)
  • Easter Monday (normal school holiday day times)
  • ANZAC Day (session starts at 1:00pm)
  • King’s Birthday (12:00-4:30pm)
  • Grand Final Friday (normal school holiday day times, and normal evening times, also)

We are closed (on the actual days):

  • New Year’s Eve
  • New Year’s Day
  • Easter Sunday
