When your nine-to-five plays out like a well-oiled machine, it can sometimes feel like each week is a little same-same. But Melbourne is brimming with a fine bounty of things to experience and explore each and every day. So aside from casual laziness and a little lack of inspiration, there's really nothing stopping you from squeezing an adventure into your schedule.
We've teamed up with Mazda3 to help you bring a sense of spontaneity to life. Each week we'll give you seven different detours — one completely achievable activity to take on every day of the week. We'll also help you plan bigger out-of-the-city adventures ahead of time, with a detours calendar and further afield itineraries (for those events that are worthy of a road trip).
Take the long way home from work to make an art-viewing pit-stop, switch up your spin class for an outdoor exploration or eat dinner somewhere other than the Thai place two doors down from your house. Yes, it's possible to do these things on a Monday.
