Virtual gatherings

Get together virtually with your family and friends with one of these ideas. Why not hold a virtual game night, dinner party, belt out some karaoke or setup a book club session? Maybe a group play-date for the kids or organise a watch and learn party where musicians can play, poets recite, dancers can dance or people share their skills... the options are endless!

Here are a few platforms that can be used for virtual gatherings

If you have other suggestions or platforms, please share your ideas!

ANIMAL HOUSE

Melbourne and Werribee Open Range Zoo's have set up live stream cameras so you can enjoy the zoo from anywhere. Can’t see them? That’s because our animals live in areas that are much bigger than what a camera can capture and they have the choice to wander wherever they please. Please keep checking in!

If needed, here are a few support services to help you, your friends and family during this time...
