Although Covid-19 has made world travel more difficult, there are still ways to get out, explore the world, and stay safe.
A great place to start your exploration is Melbourne, Australia. If you can get to Melbourne, there are tons of things you can do without being in the city, worried about Covid-19 exposure. That said, if you really want to explore Melbourne’s city life there are things you can still do. Just be sure to use proper safety protocols, such as wearing a mask and washing your hands often. As long as you keep your distance from others and continue to care for your own health and wellbeing, you can still get out and explore.
The Great Ocean Road
The great ocean road is, not surprisingly, right next to the ocean. This is amazing because it allows you to walk or drive along the coast and is a scenic way to get to other nearby cities. If you can spend any time near the ocean, you will be immediately transported to a world of tranquility and serenity. However, if you want a little more excitement, you should look up cruises from Melbourne. These can take you from Melbourne to a new, exciting locale of your choosing. Many cruises also offer activities while onboard.
Royal Botanical Gardens

Both museums and art galleries are areas where there are typically very few people and you can easily see a lot without touching anything.
Shrine of Remembrance
This area is a beautiful spot just outside of the city where you can see and appreciate the cityscape of Melbourne. This shrine is in honor of the Australians who have lost their lives due to the effects and aftermath of war.

Alleyways And Street Artwork
