Ok, we know this may be controversial, but picnics kind of suck. However, after months of lockdowns and with the weather warming up, we've been granted a little extra freedom by way of al fresco rug dining. So now that picnics are just about the only thing we’re allowed to do (provided you're double vaxxed and there's only five adults) it’s time to kick it into high gear and organise the picnic of your dreams.
UPDATE, SEP 23: Greater Sydney is under a compulsory lockdown until community cases of Covid-19 are under control. All in-person events in Sydney have therefore been cancelled or postponed until further notice. As of September 13, however, there are some new freedoms for the fully vaccinated. Brush up on what you can and cannot do in Sydney.
Yep, another weekend under the new normal, and we're all over it. But don't despair, we'll help you make sure your weekend is packed with more fun than any other day at home with our list of the top things to do. And for the first time in a while, that includes picnics!
As of Monday, September 20, the harsh lockdown rules in the 12 LGAs of concern in Sydney’s southwest and west have also been eased to match the rest of Greater Sydney’s restrictions, save for one rule. Find out more here. In addition to 'singles bubbles', young people's 'friends bubbles' will now allow under-18s more freedom to socialise.
We have also included the most beautiful outdoor areas where you can make the most of your outdoor time, within your LGA or 5km bubble, of course. Use this handy tool to calculate your bubble.
