Get Active in Darebin

Take a look at our program of free activities, aimed at increasing physical activity in the community, and within our under-represented groups.

Get Active in Darebin Program

Get Active in Darebin is a free community-based exercise program aimed at increasing the physical activity and wellbeing levels of Darebin residents, as well as engaging under-represented groups into physical activity.

Our Winter 2023 program has finished and we will have a new Get Active program on the website soon.

Most activities are catered for people of all ages, abilities and fitness levels, and facilitated by qualified instructors and coaches. Many programs include family friendly classes specifically designed for parents and children to enjoy exercise together.

Bring your own water, towels and a mat (if required) and join in on the fun.

You can also keep up to date with any of our free and low cost leisure programs by following Darebin Leisure on Facebook or joining our mailing list.
