With the some coronavirus regulations easing, we've put together five things you can do now. Make sure you're socially distancing, whether it's dine-in for a meal or going for a bushwalk.
1) Enjoy a dine-in meal
Going out and enjoying a sit-down meal is on the agenda again after almost a month and a half of restrictions prevented customers from doing so. However, that doesn't mean all pubs, cafes and restaurants are re-opening.
While they're allowed to trade with 10 people dining in, some food outlets believe it's financially not worth re-opening for just 10. But there are a few eateries in Bathurst that have re-opened for dinning in.
B Town BBQ - upstairs at the Oxford Hotel - has re-opened for 10 people only, however, the restaurant - which focuses on Texas barbecue-style cooking and American southern dining - has been open for takeaway during the pandemic.
The Hub on Keppel Street has also re-opened for dine-in, but like B Town, it's been serving takeaway too. Pantano's Bar and Grill is another restaurant that has re-opened for dine-in lunch and dinner, which has been offering both takeaway and delivery prior to the easing of restrictions.
2) Invite five visitors over to your place
Want to invite some people over to your place? Well since Friday, May 15, it's completely fine for up to five people (including children) to visit another household at one time, whether you live in Kelso, Eglinton, West Bathurst or Raglan. There is no limit the number of guests someone is allowed per day as long as there are no more than fiveat a time.
From June 1, there will be no restrictions about travelling regionally, so long as you remain within NSW.
Make sure you're following social distancing rules if people do visit your house, which is keeping a distance of 1.5 metres from each other.
3) Go for a bushwalk
While camping has not been permitted in national parks since March 26, many remain open for the local community to exercise and enjoy the outdoors.
However, some national parks remained closed not because of the coronavirus pandemic, rather because of the summer bushfires.
If you plan on visiting a national park, check the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service website for closures.
One nearby national park that remains open is the Evans Crown Nature Reserve, which is south of Bathurst.
Popular locations a bit further from Bathurst such as the Newnes Industrial Ruins remains shut due to the bushfires however.
4) Take the family down to the playground
Outdoor playground and exercise equipment can now be used again, with caution.
This includes the playground at the Adventure Playground, as well as the playground at Bicentennial Park.
Users are reminded to social distance from other people when using the equipment.
5) Have a public gathering of up to 10 people
As long as you're socially distancing, people are now allowed to gather in a group of 10 people outside in public.
You could go for a picnic at Machattie Park or by the Macquarie River, however, there are still some restrictions of organised training for sport, so make sure you check with your local association about you're allowed to start training.
