Cosy indoor activities

Winter in Australia can be a chilly and damp season, making it tempting to stay and do indoor activities until the sun returns. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice having fun.

Here are some indoor activities perfect for the winter months:

  • Baking –  What better way to stay cosy than to bake some delicious treats? Try your hand at making cookies, cakes, or bread. Not only will the warm oven heat up your home, but the delicious aromas will make it smell lovely.
  • Movie or game night – Invite some friends over for a movie or game night. You can snuggle up with some blankets and hot chocolate while playing board games or watching your favourite films.
  • Reading- Winter is the perfect time to catch up on your reading list. Curl up with a good book, and if you have a fireplace, light a fire and enjoy the warmth and ambiance.
  • Crafts – Get creative with some winter crafts such as making your own candles, knitting a scarf, drawing or painting.
  • Spa day – Pamper yourself with a spa day at home. Take a warm bath, light some candles, and indulge in a face mask or massage.
  • Winter cleaning – Winter is also a great time for cleaning and organising your home. Decluttering and tidying up can make your home feel cosy and comfortable.
  • Indoor gardening – Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you can’t grow plants. Create an indoor garden with potted plants and herbs to add some greenery and freshness to your home.
  • Learn a new skill – Use the winter months to learn a new indoor activities skill, such as cooking, sewing, or playing an instrument.


Staying cosy and entertained during Australian winters can be easy and enjoyable with these indoor activities.
