Let the picnicking begin!
From 11.59pm this Thursday 21 October, restrictions ease, and outdoor gatherings can expand to 15 people for Metro Melbourne, and up to 20 people in regional Victoria.
Make your post-lockdown picnic extra special, while keeping things simple, with these ideas and activities.
The right soundtrack makes all the difference. The playlists right here from RISING are just the thing to ease everyone into socialising again, with their chilled atmosphere and summery vibes.
Don’t stress about packing the ideal picnic to please everyone. Let your crew pick for themselves and support local businesses at the same time. You can find local legends in your area with our guide to getting your picnic fix from local cafes and restaurants.
When planning your picnic spot, make it a good choice for everyone. Take a look at the All Abilities Walks Series for wheelchair-accessible and stroller-friendly walks in parks near you.
You won’t be the only one feeling a little overwhelmed at finding yourself in a social situation again. Focusing on your surroundings can help.
Why not try having an activity on hand for kids and adults alike? The Aussie Backyard Bird Count by Birdlife Australia encourages you to look around and share what you see. Oh, and it’s fine if you’re taking part from further afield than your backyard!
Be in the moment, and enjoy it to the full!
