Get Active Across The Region

Each Whitsunday town will host a ‘Get Active Family Fun Day’ after the success of the inaugural event of its kind in Airlie Beach last September.

Whitsunday Regional Council will facilitate Get Active Family Fun Days across the region in March and April with the vision of promoting mental and physical health and well-being.

Each event will include entertainment, workshops, fitness activities, games, food, and information stalls from local organisations that support mental and physical health.

The program of free events starts in Collinsville on March 11 before heading to Proserpine, Airlie Beach, and Bowen -- a guide to each event can be found at the bottom of this article.

On the cards will be free activities at each which include a giant obstacle course, slip ‘n’ slide, and more, while The Airlie Beach event will be rounded off with a Family Movie from 6.00pm on the outdoor cinema screen.

Council is seeking expressions of interest from local health, fitness, well-being, entertainment and food vendors to participate in each Family Fun Day.
