Enjoy living an active and healthy lifestyle

MAKING activity a regular part of your day and making healthy food choices has many benefits for you and our community. And the Gold Coast has so much to offer.

City of Gold Coast's award-winning Active & Healthy program has been getting thousands of residents up, out and active every week for many years.

The Active & Healthy program is now online, with booklets available from all City customer service centres and libraries. The program is jam-packed with new activities and programs designed to get you active in the beautiful Gold Coast.

The program runs from July 2015 to June 5, 2016.

If you would like to receive a copy of the new Active & Healthy Lifestyle Guide, please email your name and postal address to active healthygc@goldcoast.qld .gov.au.

Instead of telling yourself you can't, tell yourself you can. The Active & Healthy program encourages all Gold Coasters to make being active part of their everyday lives. Regular physical activity can help keep us physically and mentally fit as well as healthy and happy.
