The Best Ways to Enjoy the Colder Months

If last year taught us anything, it’s that making time to get out and about is all important when it comes to staying fit and healthy. We all worked hard to find ways to stay active and connected throughout lock-down, and now isn’t the time to let go of those habits!

Through the colder months (and snap lockdowns) it’s more important than ever to keep the good momentum up – so let’s take a look at some of the best ways to get out there and enjoy what Melbourne has to offer during the colder months.

Run, Ride, Lift, Wander

Exercise is essential, it’s what keeps us moving and enjoying ourselves even when we don’t have much else on, and the health benefits are undeniable. Whatever your pace, and whatever your chosen method of exercise, the colder months are a great time to really double down on your commitment to healthy living.

Walks, jogs and runs, perhaps swimming or cycling for some lower impact exercise – they’re all things you can do even through lockdown. And they’ll set you up brilliantly to make new friends in the community with shared interests when restrictions come off!

Get your cultural kicks in at the NGV

Perhaps one of the best things about living in Melbourne is that you’re right at the heart of everything cultural. Throughout Melbourne’s many art galleries you’ll find plenty to keep you busy even through the slower winter months – and the NGV is perhaps one of the best places to go!

If the recent snap lockdown has interrupted your plans, then maybe try out one of their virtual tours! We think they’re a brilliant way to get your cultural kicks even when snap lockdowns mean we can’t be there in person. There’s no better way to really get the most out of a virtual trip than to have a virtual guide showing you the way.

Support your team

Melbourne is the sporting capital of Australia, and maybe the southern hemisphere. Even if you’re not much of a sports fan, the roar of a big crowd may be worth the trip. In many ways, it’s been sporting organisations across the world that have led the way in COVID safe measures. So, lockdown and restrictions permitting, we encourage you to get out to a game of your favourite code and experience it for yourself.
