Have you ever wanted to try trugo, taekwondo, lacrosse or flip flop bowls? Or perhaps you prefer self-defence, table tennis, street orienteering or basketball. Give them all a go during the Get Active! Expo.

A series of health and fitness ‘come and try’ days, the Expo delivers a five week program packed with clinics and events to suit everyone’s tastes.

Running from 15 March to 22 April, the whole family can take part in activities that showcase the parks, reserves and facilities across the City of Maribyrnong. The best part? It’s completely free! And all registered participants receive free passes to Maribyrnong Aquatic Centre and RecWest Footscray.

Now in its seventh 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.

With plenty of activities to choose from, this is your chance to find your inner athlete and get a taste of what new activity lies on your horizon, with sessions across the entire Expo accessible to all ages and abilities.

The Expo kicks off on Sunday 15 March with a fun-filled launch day at Skinner Reserve in Braybrook, and will culminate on Wednesday 22 April with a movie night at Sun Theatre, Yarraville. Registrations are now open.
