Participant numbers for Council's Active and Healthy program

Brisbane City Council wishes to advise that from Friday 25 September some of Council’s Active and Healthy sessions may increase participant numbers, in line with the new health directive from the Queensland Government for gatherings.   

If the activity is being delivered under an Approved COVID Safe Industry Plan the activity is exempt from the maximum person rule. All other sessions will be capped at a maximum of 30 people, including the provider(s). Providers will also continue to apply COVIDSafe measures, including physical distancing.

Bookings may be required, so participants are encouraged to search our What’s On calendar to see what activities are available or phone Council on ‪07 3403 8888.

Brisbane City Council offers a variety of fitness and well-being activities for individuals of all ages, fitness levels and abilities. 

Get active at our free fitness classes, or take advantage of our low-cost activities to help improve your health. Try yoga, tai chi, group bike rides, Zumba, boxing or even aqua aerobics.

With such a large variety of group fitness classes, there's so many ways to build strength, increase your cardio fitness and help relax and ease your mind. 

Our active and healthy events are just one of the many ways we're creating more things to see and do in Brisbane.
