Get Active & Healthy for free on the Gold Coast

THERE is something for everyone in the latest City of Gold Coast ‘must do’ list of health and fitness activities, and the best bit is all of them are free or low-cost.

The newly launched Active & Healthy program features more than 170 fitness and wellbeing activities across the city each week.

Acting Mayor Donna Gates said the Active & Healthy program has been getting thousands of Gold Coasters up, out and active for nearly a decade.


“There’s something to suit every age group and ability, including activities specific to kids, seniors, parents with bubs and teenagers. All activities are free or low cost,” Cr Gates said.

“The emphasis is on energy and enjoyment. The activities are a fantastic way to increase wellbeing and a chance to meet new people and have a lot of fun.

“Our famous climate, beautiful parks and beaches combine with our sports fields and venues to create the ideal drawcard to live an active and healthy life.”
