Get Active! Expo back for 2022

Published on 08 April 2022


Keen to learn Tai Chi or want to try your luck at Lacrosse or Taekwondo? Now’s your chance with registrations open for the free Get Active! Expo, which is back for 2022.

A series of health, fitness and wellbeing ‘come and try’ days, the Expo delivers a four-and-a-half week program packed with over 100 clinics, events and activities to suit everyone’s tastes, abilities and interests.

Running until Wednesday 4 May, the Expo provides opportunities for whole families to take part in activities in parks, open spaces and facilities across the City of Maribyrnong. Plus – all registered participants receive 10 free visits to RecWest Footscray.

Now in its ninth year, the Expo showcases the huge range of sport and recreation opportunities on offer in our City – it’s the ultimate ‘try before you buy’ sporting program.

It is your chance to try out something new, find your inner athlete or just get your body moving with friends and family. There are sessions across the entire range of activities that are accessible to all ages and abilities – from toddlers all the way to seniors (60+).

The Get Active! At Home Series, an at-home adaption of the Expo launched by Council in 2021 during the COVID-19 lockdowns, was a finalist of the 2021 Victorian Health Promotion Awards under the ‘Outstanding Health Promotion’ category.
