Walking

""Whether it's a bush walk, a suburban hill circuit or a paced walk at your local shopping centre, walking improves your health and wellbeing.

Council walking trails

Brisbane City Council has created a number of interesting walking trails, including public art trails and heritage trails for you to walk for fitness and recreation.

Heart Foundation Walking (formerly known as Gonewalking)

Council's former Gonewalking program is now delivered through the Heart Foundation Walking program.

Heart Foundation Walking is Australia's largest network of free community-based walking groups with over 20,000 participants. It's another way Council is encouraging an active and healthy Brisbane to achieve our vision for the city's future.

The free program led by trained Walk Organisers, managed by a local coordinator at the Heart Foundation. With more than 100 walks available, walk at your own pace and choose from slow, medium and fast walks. It's a great opportunity to make new friends, see more of Brisbane's famous parklands and get rewarded for reaching milestones as part of the Walker Recognition Scheme.

You can also join in on Heart Foundation Walking Park Week Walks. Join in on the fun at Karawatha Forest on Sunday 5 March. Find out more

Become a virtual walker

If you prefer to walk on your own, or can't access a group nearby, you can join the Heart Foundation Walking's virtual walking community and register as an individual to track your walks online. You will be notified when a new group starts in your area so you can decide if you would like to join in. With the virtual walking community, you can walk any time and place you like, regardless of where you live, work, or play.

Start a walking group

Being a volunteer Walk Organiser is fun and easy. You get to choose the walking route and the days and times to walk.
