Healthy lifestyles - cycling and walking

Walking and cycling on the Gold Coast

Change the way you move and consider walking or cycling to your next destination for fun, fitness and smart transport.

Explore the Gold Coast's natural environment taking one of the many bushwalking trails or by walking your dog.


Healthy lifestyles - farmers markets

Healthy eating and wellbeing

Join the real food revolution and taste the difference! A trip to a Gold Coast farmers’ market can mean a shopping bag full of local cheeses, jams or organic vegetables. We also have many cooking workshops where you can learn to make wholesome and delicious meals.

If you would like to grow your own vegetables, fruit, or flowers, and want to interact with like-minded green thumbs, the community gardens may be for you.
