Active and healthy events
Brisbane City Council offers a variety of free and affordable recreational activities. Council's Active and Healthy program offers opportunities for residents to participate in activities that encourage physical activity, healthy eating, wellbeing, connection with others and learning new skills.
Move more by choosing from the wide range of activities on offer held seven days a week, all over Brisbane. Try yoga, tai chi, kayaking, tennis, boxing, aqua aerobics and GOLD events for our seniors.
Bring your friends, or make new ones, and get active and healthy together. All ages, fitness levels and abilities are welcome.
Our active and healthy events are just one of the many ways we're creating more things to see and do in Brisbane.
