Keep learning with Melbourne and Victoria's creatives, chefs and wellness experts – without leaving your home. We have a heap of ways to keep you occupied and stimulated during the restrictions, no matter where you are.

Cellar doors and tastings

Virtual cellar door tastings by the region's vintners and brewers will lead you through tasting notes and tips for the best drops while you sip at home. Tour outstanding Yarra Valley wineries or High Country craft brewers Bridge Road Brewers and Bright Brewery, right from your couch.

Cooking classes

Get cracking in the kitchen, mixing your own cocktails with Melbourne's Simply Cocktails or the High Country's Reed and Co.

Try your hand at Thai cookery with BangPop, and join masterclasses with head chefs from hatted Melbourne restaurants Atlas Dining and Vue de Monde. Sharpen your gnocchi-making skills with Katrina Pizzini – accompanied by exceptional King Valley vino – from Pizzini wines.


Get creative

Hear from local and international authors at the Melbourne Writers Festival, this year delivering a jam-packed online program.

Draw along with skilled artists through NGV's Drop-by-Drawing, try pottery making with Melbourne's Céramiques and printmaking with Bendigo Art Gallery's Create at Home workshops. ClassBento has a raft of virtual art and craft classes you can explore, from watercolours to DIY soy candles.

Ways to wellness

You can keep your body moving with upbeat '80s-style moves from Collingwood's Body Electric Dance Studios, or online classes from The Australian Ballet. Then take down the tempo with self-guided foot therapy from the Spa Beechworth, part of High Country at Home, or a weekly meditation class.

Classes are popping up from Melbourne and Victorian businesses all the time. Check out your local favourites to see what they may be offering.
