4. Complete digital jigsaw puzzles
Enjoy the fun of jigsaw puzzles, without the mess! NSW brings you 21 unique puzzles, featuring different parts of Australia, such as the adorable Koalas at Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, The Three Sisters in the Blue Mountains, or the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. What’s more, you can change the difficulty of the puzzle by increasing or decreasing the number of pieces involved, in case you’re up for a challenge or are looking for something easier.
5. Travel the world from your couch
Seasoned travellers, nature-lovers, and couch-surfers may be missing the time when you can travel at will. While travel restrictions are still in place now, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy you love about travelling at home – by watching LonelyPlanet’s award-winning documentaries for free, from now until 1 June 2020. Now you can journey to Down Under, where endless sights await or discover the culture rich Middle East markets and experience their unique food scene without even leaving your couch.
Bookworms, on the other hand, may like LonelyPlanet’s eBooks on Wellbeing, Kids, and Recipes instead. Why not try a new exotic recipe or yoga routine before the Circuit Breaker ends!
6. Attend dance classes by experts
An initiative by Capella, this activity makes working out and burning fat more fun – and you get tips from experts! Try out the popular Virtual Studios from the Sydney Dance Company, or pick up and brush up on your ballet skills with The Australian Ballet for free – regardless of your age and experience levels.
7. Learn about wine
Wine-enthusiasts will love Nyetimber’s Wine Series that gives you an exclusive look at the wine-making processes of their range, like the Rosé Multi Vintage, or Blanc de Blancs, and learn to appreciate the artistry and care that goes into each bottle.
