Melburnians have woken up to an easing of restrictions, with changes to travel, outdoor gatherings, sport and hairdressers now in effect.
For the first time in months, Melbourne residents will be allowed to travel up to 25 kilometres away from their homes and can leave the house for as long as they like.
While hairdressers and sports such as tennis and golf have also been allowed to reopen.
But other businesses and retailers will have to wait until November 2 to open their doors.
Fiona Patten is the leader of the Reason Party, and the MP for Northern Metropolitan Region of Melbourne.
She spoke to ABC NewsRadio’s Thomas Oriti.
