Staying Covid-safe

Public health advice and Government directions in response to Covid-19 are changing rapidly. It is your responsibility to stay up to date with the latest advice in your area before you host or shop at a garage sale on the Trail.

Access the latest Government directions for your State or Territory here:

ACT / NSW / NT / QLD / SA / TAS / VIC / WA

We also recommend downloading the Australian Government's Coronavirus Australia app. This provides the most up-to-date advice and information and is available on iOS and Android.


As part of our commitment to ensuring you have a super fun and safe time on the Trail this year, we've developed some new elements to Garage Sale Trail that you can do matter what restrictions are in place where you live.

Here's how you can get involved:

Join an online masterclass

Already decluttered or got enough stuff? Fear not, you can still get involved. We’ve teamed up with some of Australia’s most stylist sustainability experts to bring you a series of online masterclasses that will have you farewelling fast fashion forever. Learn how to style, mend and shop secondhand, all in under an hour. View events and register here.

Stay indoors and host a virtual garage sale

Jump on the bandwagon that's sweeping across Asia and the USA and host a virtual garage sale by live streaming your garage sale on Facebook or Instagram. We provide a toolkit and all the how-tos you need. Find out more.

Host a Covid-safe real life garage sale

Your safety on the Trail is our #1 priority so follow our Covid-safe checklist to keep you, your neighbours and wider community safe if you’re planning to get out and about to the thousands of garage sales that will happen across the country on 21 & 22 November. Read our Covid-safe checklist here.
