We all have those classic images of Melbourne (and the rest of the state) in our minds: a graffitied laneway, a crowded Flinders Street Station platform… a horde of people queuing for hours outside Chin Chin. But while we may think we’ve seen it all, been everywhere (man) and witnessed every Melbourne cliché there is, we still manage to be a little surprised by our city every now and then.
According to advice from the Department of Health, Victorians can currently only leave their houses for four reasons: to get food and supplies, to get care or give care, to exercise, or to work if it can't be done at home. Those living within metropolitan Melbourne cannot enter into regional Victoria for hiking or exercise. You must stay within 5km of your house. Please check with information on the DHHS website about what the current rules are.
