Lorne, Australia

In NSW, Victoria, ACT, Tasmania, South Australia and the NT the June long weekend a.k.a. the Queen's Birthday long weekend falls on 6-8 June 2020.

For most of us, it means three days off which you can spend either hiring a car and travelling around the state or relaxing at home.

Whichever you're planning to do, knowing what's open and where you can travel can help sort out your weekend (and your meals). Here's the lowdown:

What's open in your city

Check out our guides for specific shopping centres, public spaces, restaurants, parks, beaches and cultural venues that are open in your capital city.

Supermarkets

All major supermarkets across the nation will be trading on Monday 8 June. This includes Woolworths, Coles and Aldi. However, the smaller stores may be closed.

In states and territories that are celebrating the Queen's Birthday, public holiday hours may come into affect. Before heading out, check in with your local stores to make sure they'll be open when you arrive.


Westfield

All Westfields will be open on public holiday Monday although individual stores may choose to remain closed on the day.

Again, public holiday hours may be imposed, which could mean an opening time of 10am and early closures.


Cinemas

By 8 June, cinemas in the ACT, Queensland, South Australia and the Northern Territory will have relaxed restrictions enough to re-open cinemas with social distancing and hygiene measures in places.

However, at the time of publish, no major cinema complexes have confirmed they'll be open over the long weekend.

Hoyts has stated that it'll reopen "soon" while Palace Cinemas plans to reopen in mid-July.

So for now, you may have to continue streaming your movies online.


Restaurants and cafes

Numerous states and territories have relaxed their COVID-19 restrictions to allow some form of in-house dining.

On 8 June, South Australia will allow up to 80 diners per venue with no requirement to order a meal with a drink. NSW has similar rules but will allow up to 50 diners per venue or space. In ACT and Victoria, limit is 20 people, while in Tasmania the limit is 10.

The Northern Territory has reopened all dining venues with no numbers or consumption restrictions.

All venues must comply with social distancing and hygiene rules.

While all states celebrating the Queen's Birthday have been given the green light to reopen in-house dining, select venues may choose to remain closed or only offer takeaway. If you're set on a place, contact the venue directly for up-to-date details.


Attractions and activities

Numerous zoos, museums, art galleries, libraries and aquariums will be open over the long weekend. However, they are limiting the number of patrons inside at one time. Many have implemented timed, ticketed services to better manage these numbers.
