Are you ready for Active April?

We are thrilled at the number and variety of ways to participate. Rachel Whittaker, Health Promotion at Grampians Community Health is excited about this campaign and invites you to get involved.


Grampians Community Health and Stawell Regional Health have been working closely with the Northern Grampians Shire Council, East Wimmera Health Service, Grampians Pyrenees Primary Care Partnership, Wimmera Regional Sports Assembly and Parks Victoria to help community members in our regions get active in April.

Northern Grampians Shire Gets Active in April is a campaign across the region that provides a diverse and exciting range of opportunities to encourage people to participate and be more active in their own community.

Activities include tai chi, bush and trail walks, come and try bowls, colour run, fun runs, petanque, bike riding scavenger hunt bare foot bowls, dancing and much more.

“Northern Grampians Shire, Grampians Community Health and Stawell Regional Health work together to plan priority health promotion areas. Active Living is one of the three priority areas to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in our area for the next four years,” Ms Toomey said.

“Increasing your activity doesn’t need to be difficult or expensive, simply playing with your children in the park, taking the dog for a walk, standing more, walking to work or school, gardening or dancing around the house are all great.”

There are great activities in the Grampians Wimmera, make sure to check your local area for activities you can join in to get active.
