In response to COVID-19, all non-essential gatherings have been cancelled in Australia. Eat-in restaurants, gyms, pubs, clubs, entertainment venues and cinemas are closed until further notice. Places that offer essential service including supermarkets, schools and hairdressers are currently still open.
If you need to head out, but don't know what's open, these are the shopping centres and takeaway restaurants still trading in Canberra.
Note: The below is accurate as of 1 April 2020. Due to the changing nature of the situation, it's best to get in contact with the venue or attraction prior to visiting to ensure they are open for business.
There are still plenty of open spaces for you to exercise and get fresh air in Canberra. You can leave the house with the people who live under your roof, just keep in mind you can't publicly gather with more than one other person who lives outside of your household. Be sure to keep a 1.5 meter distance from other people when you're out and about.
It's business as usual for shopping centres and grocery stores. Just be mindful opening hours may shift slightly at short notice over the following weeks. Shoppers are encouraged to use the tap and go payment method, to use the hand sanitiser that is likely to be found at the entry and exit point of a store and to be mindful to keep a distance of at least 1.5 metres between yourself and other shoppers.
If you're heading to a larger shopping centre, play areas and gyms will not be open. You can still order from food courts, cafes and restaurants but these orders will be for takeaway only.
Restaurants and cafes are currently banned from letting customers dine inside their venue. Don't fret, though. Any restaurant or cafe that chooses to remain open is able to offer takeaway. Some cafes and restaurants have altered their menus to reflect this and are also asking customers not to bring keep cups for takeaway coffee as a hygiene and safety precaution.
Know any other restaurants that have turned to takeaway? Let us know in the comments below so we can add them to our list.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
