Get Healthy and Active in the Moreton Bay Region

Posted: 11am 02 Feb 2021

Boredom can be a thing of the past for seniors, with plenty of free or low-cost Moreton Bay Regional Council programs and activities to join in or attractions to visit, offering everything from seniors fitness and chair yoga to technology training and art exhibitions.

The Council’s Healthy and Active Moreton program provides an avenue for residents to be more active, more often through an exciting range of fitness, recreation and sport activities and workshops.

There are hundreds of activities, across the region, which appeal to all ages and abilities. A number of these are geared towards seniors.

These include pilates, seniors group fitness, chair yoga, canoe adventures, gateball games and even Zumba. Bookings are required for all Healthy and Active Moreton activities. Search seniors on the website mbrc.qld.gov.au/healthy-active.

Mayor Peter Flannery says Council increased funding for the program by $100,000, in July, in a bid to get residents moving again after the COVID-19 shutdown.

“If there’s one thing we learned from COVID-19 it’s the importance of staying active, not only for our fitness levels but our mental health,” Mayor Flannery says.

“All of our providers are operating in accordance with State Government regulations for COVID-19 so you can rest assured that Council is committed to keeping the Moreton Bay Region safe.

“The program caters for literally anyone and everyone - and the best part is that all activities are free or low cost, which I know is important for all during tough times.”

Activities to choose from

  • Pilates
  • Seniors group fitness
  • Chair yoga
  • Canoe adventures
  • Gateball
  • Zumba
  • And much more

For those more interested in exploring their creative side, the council’s galleries, museums and libraries run regular events throughout the year.
