Greater Sydney, including the Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Shellhabour, is currently under stay at home orders, while the rest of NSW has some restrictions. You can stay up to date with the developing COVID-19 situation in NSW, as well as current restrictions, at NSW Health.

While international borders remain (mostly) shut, there's no better time to explore our regional areas — especially when there's a festival bursting with arts, eats and beats to lure you there. So, it's time to fire up the group chat and figure out whose car to take on a road trip because we're heading to Wagga Wagga for Lost Lanes Festival at the end of the month.

Now in its third year, Lost Lanes returns to light up multiple locations across Wagga Wagga's CBD on Saturday, June 26 with a program centred around the theme Gloww (two w's, get it?) — and it's well worth hitting the Hume Highway for. We're talking light projections, interactive artworks that you can literally get on top of and live tunes galore across eight locations including Victory Memorial Gardens, Wollundry Lagoon and the Civic Centre Precints.

Catch performances from Creature Fear and Eastbound Buzz as well as internationally renowned DJ and former Wagga Wagga resident Nina Las Vegas on the decks. Or, have a crack at ice skating at Wagga Wagga's first pop-up outdoor ice skating rink.

There'll be street food and boozy winter drinks to keep you warm as you cruise around town checking out the art and activations, too — think, spicy mulled wine, fluffy paella, gooey cheese toasties and more.

Lost Lanes is a free community event by Wagga Wagga City Council happening on Saturday, June 26, but you can get your skates on at the ice rink until July 11. For more information and to book tickets to an ice-skating session, visit the website
