The free five-and-a-half week program is full of 'come and try' style sessions designed to showcase a range of sport, recreation and wellbeing opportunities available throughout Maribyrnong.

There are activities offered for everyone to enjoy: toddlers (2-5), children (5-12), youth (12-17), adults, and seniors (60+). We also include 'women only' sessions and ensure there is access for all abilities. From Zumba to orienteering, Bollywood dance to Tai Chi and Barefoot Bowls, there really is something for everyone. It is a chance to try something new and step out of your comfort zone in a safe environment.

Acknowledging that mental health and wellbeing is just as important as physical health; this year’s program also features a number of classes that focus on mental health such as embrace self-worth and self-care, and release sadness, grief and guilt.
