With the COVID lockdown covering all of the state to varying degrees, restrictions may be in place relating to identified hot spots. Check with NSW Health for current information before travelling or attending events in the community. COVID-safe rules will apply. Please check with organisers if your desired events are still going ahead. If you are staying home, here's a couple of time fillers.
For the calendar
Lockdown won't last forever so it will pay to plan ahead. When the road is again open there will be businesses, communities and events aplenty eagerly awaiting your return. Search for events in your community and then start spreading your wings a little further each time to find at least one thing to do every weekend. Most communities have a what's on list so start by checking out council websites or simply googling "what's on [insert location here]".
