Escape Room
It’s time to #EscapeTheHouse. Sydney Opera House has transported the thrills and spills of your classic fear-inducing escape rooms to the digital space. Now you can experience those panic-inducing vibes at home with their Trials of Wisdom virtual escape room. This online game is free and requires you to solve riddles and puzzles to make it out!

These COVID times are definitely history in the baking. Make use of those extra hours at home by getting your hands a lil’ dirty. Why not bake yourself a batch of Rainbow Nourishments jam donut cinnamon scrolls? The ultimate combo of two all-time favourite desserts. You can even drop a few of these lockdown treats to your neighbours and friends (if you don’t eat them all yourself).

Put your party pants on because it’s time to work up a sweat. Retrosweat is here for you in and out of lockdown. To keep you all entertained, they’re running an epic range of live retro dance classes, such as 80s Mixtape, 90s Diva Yoga, and a Janet Jackson Workout. They’ve also got a huge library of on-demand workouts for you to do whenever you’re feeling a bit groovy. Go on, sign up and let your lycra loose.
