No you're not too old!!!!!!! Don't worry about age. Unless you want to make it to the Olympics, in that case you may be too old. I think you'd have a chance at nationals (especially as you live in Australia, like me!!) if you fall in love with the sport and are really dedicated!! However, it's really expensive so you might want to consider if your parents/you can pay for skating expenses. If you're good at rollerblading then you won't have much trouble ice skating. I'm also 13 and I've been skating for a few months, used to do rollerblading and now I already have most of my single jumps.
I googled your area and couldn't find any ice rinks. that might be a problem for you. But try looking here: it has like all the rinks in australia (as you can see, there aren't many). I live in Vic and have to travel 1 hour and a half to my nearest rink.
Anybody been campin at the Grand National Smokey Mountain Park Lately?

How can you know you are meant to Ice Skate, is your heart good enough, are you good enough to be one?
One night I went ice skating with a friend of mine . . . only because she wanted to. Once we got on the ice, ohhhhhhh . . . something inside me just lit up . . . and I knew THAT was what I wanted to get into.
As a kid, I dreamed of becoming the best roller skater in the world - even though I only skated on the sidewalk a lot. Growing up I loved music and dance. As an adult, I needed to find an exercise regiment. So somehow figure skating would cover all those things . . . and I instantly connected that thought when we skated that one faithful evening. How cool is it to relive a childhood passion (though it was different equipment) . . . and keeping healthy at that? I just knew skating was meant for ME!
I did research on ice skates that week - and I had my very own pair by the end of the week. Skates are not cheap, so buying my own pair you bet I was going to commit to this sport.
I skated many evening public sessions on my own after that, then met a few nice people "my age" who encouraged me to take lessons. I thought I was fairly good at it . . . and my new friends who taught me stuff thought I learned so quickly . . . so I had my first group lesson within a couple months. They let me skip to the next level that very first day. I loved learning to skate all these moves . . . and I just practiced my little heart out to keep moving forward. Eventually I got my own coach, got to compete, perform, go to Adult Nationals . . . I did more in skating than I ever thought I could. And I had LOADS of FUN every step of the way!
I know what you mean as I was once there too. The only way you're going to find out is getting productive about it and going for it. You have a gut feeling about entering this beautiful sport, so I say go with it . . . you may be pleasantly surprised how far your love for skating will take you.
I knew I loved to skate the moment I started, but it wasn't until I really got into it that I realized HOW MUCH I loved it. I'll tell you - it'll never be out of my life - wink!!! Best of luck to you!!
