Health & Lifestyle

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™ gives Gold Coasters the opportunity to become more involved in sports and health and lifestyle activities.

In the lead up to GC2018, City of Gold Coast’s Active & Healthy Program will ensure everyone has access to information and is aware of opportunities to build physical activity and healthy eating into our daily lives. Residents, local community organisations, sporting clubs, schools and businesses are invited to take part in the program.

The Active & Healthy Program uses public spaces and community venues and facilities. The action packed weekend program can include stand-up paddle-boarding workshops, kayaking, skateboarding workshops, mini Active & Healthy Fun Days and rock climbing. There are also naturally Gold Coast workshops which are a perfect way to discover a new activity and get active while having fun with the family.

During school holidays the Active & Healthy Program offers many fun and affordable activities for kids aged four to 18 years. Activities are offered across the city and provide a great way to get the kids outdoors and enjoying all that the Gold Coast has to offer.

For information on local sporting clubs, download the Community Guide from the Gold Coast Community Guide page.
