Let’s improve how we move!

We’re committed to promoting sustainable healthy lifestyles, and a big part of that is improving how we get around.

We need feedback from you – and all residents – to better understand how we can enable and encourage more people to participate in walking and cycling around Ararat.

Your ideas will help us prepare an Active Transport and Lifestyle Strategy, funded by the State Government Community Facility Funding Program.

So whether you’re a keen cyclist or don’t ride at all, we’d love to hear from you. Please take a couple of minutes to complete our questionnaire by clicking on this link.

And, if you have specific ideas about how we might create better bike paths, share them with us by clicking on this link.

Register now for Boot Camp updates.

Who will be our Active8 Finalists?

The Active8 Challenge call for entries is closed. We will be announcing our lucky 8 finalists on 25th June at the Civic Reception.

Find out who will go through an extensive 3-month fitness programme, assisted by a personal trainer and mentored by a The Biggest Loser contestant. A great transformation is about to take place in Ararat. We are very excited!
