Things to do in Melbourne during lock down

Many performances, museums and venues have been closed and cancelled due to coronavirus so we’ve come up with a list of fun things to do while you’re self quarantining or social distancing.

  • Looking to learn something new while you’re at home? Laneway Learning has introduced a bunch of new online classes you can do virtually. There are classes on mindful doodling, journaling, constellation embroidery, macramé, crocheting, burlesque workouts, fermenting, yoga classes and classes on “surviving chairs” and how to argue better. There’s also a class on getting your finances sorted during the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Classes can be registered here:

  • Do a 1000 – piece jigsaw puzzle of a hand-drawn map of Melbourne: The Melbourne Map is an art print that took over four years and more than 8,000 hours of research, design and illustration to put together. That hand-drawn map has now been turned into a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle that lets you experience life once again on Melbourne’s streets, albeit vicariously. The map the puzzle depicts is the work of founder and producer Melinda Clarke, who worked with three illustrators (Lewis Brownlie, Deborah Young and Sean Rodwell) to create the intricate artwork.

Lots to choose from. Jump online and check out the latest family friendly games!

  • Tour Melbourne Museum from home

You might not be able to physically visit museums in Melbourne anymore, but as of today, you can visit them virtually. Today Museums Victoria launched Museum at Home; an initiative that allows you to engage and explore Melbourne Museum, Scienceworks and the Immigration Museum online. The online project will allow guests to go behind the scenes, take virtual tours (hosted by hilarious kidult comedy team the Listies), learn about STEM, experience live streamed virtual events. You can watch it here:
