While the world stays at home, life on and around Lady Elliot Island on the Southern Great Barrier Reef is continuing as normal for the giant manta rays, the turtles, the seabirds and the incredible coral surrounding the cay.

With the world pausing for the time being, the eco-resort’s skeleton staff are bringing the island to the world instead with their new video series Island Talks.

Meet the people who work on this wildlife haven, including marine biologists and divers, and learn the amazing stories of the island’s ß∑lora and fauna, its importance as a breeding and feeding ground, and its history of rehabilitation under the eco-esort’s management.

The city of Memphis has a raft of new virtual experiences for people to enjoy until they can make their way to the city in person.

With something for everyone, from kids to hardcore Elvis fans, the list of virtual experiences includes: a Graceland-live cam, narrated zoolympics from Memphis Zoo, a Museum-to-Go including activities for kids to do at home, a streamed production of Story Time in Neverland, and a virtual commemoration from the National Civil Rights Museum of Dr Martin Luther King’s death.

 Nikko’s new Ritz: sits on the banks of the iconic Lake Chuzenji.

The Ritz Carlton Hotel Company will open its fifth hotel in Japan, this time in a partnership with the Tobu Railway.

The new luxury hotel will be located in Nikko, which is famed for its pristine nature, historical and cultural significance and as a sacred pilgrimage destination.

Located in the Oku-Nikko area (Deep-Nikko), the Ritz Carlton Nikko sits on the banks of the iconic Lake Chuzenji.

Nikko is famous for some of the world’s best autumn leaves and lies just under a two-hour journey north from Tokyo with the Tobu Railway.

The hotel has been built to show views of the nearby Mount Nantai, that stands 2486-meters high and is a five-minute walk from one of Japan’s three most beautiful waterfalls — Kegon Falls.

Ritz Carlton luxury hotels are also located in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Okinawa.

The Art Gallery of Queensland: part of a virtual exploration of the state.

 SATV: bringing South Australia into living rooms. Image: Meaghan Coles.

As borders and movement are restricted around the world and people’s lives are confined to virtual spaces, the South Australian Tourism Commission is bringing South Australia into living rooms across the country via a new online platform, SATV.

SATV features local tourism operators and businesses that have adapted how they operate during COVID-19 restrictions to offer new innovative ways to still purchase, experience and enjoy their product or service from the confines of home.

The platform will also act as a live-content hub, showcasing some of South Australia’s most iconic regions and charismatic operators, keeping couped-up travellers and the community inspired while in self-isolation or adhering to social distancing rules.

SATV will showcase content from South Australia’s wide range of businesses that champion the destination’s best qualities.

From the comfort of the couch: viewers can learn winemaking with the Willy Wonka of viticulture, Chester Osborn, and purchase their wines; cook alongside one of Adelaide’s best chefs, Africola’s Duncan Welgemoed, as he tackles everyday pantry ingredients to make a restaurant quality dish and order takeaway from Africola for the first time in the restaurant’s history; or simply unwind to a picturesque backdrop of South Australia.

Visit www.southaustralia.com.

NOTE: Potential travellers should check the status of individual events and establishments with regard to the coronavirus outbreak.
