So, what are you waiting for? Join in the fun at one of the free sessions below and take your first step to a new you!

Active in the City

There are plenty of ways to get Active in the City! From Zumba and Tai Chi to boxing, cross training, and yoga, our Active in the City program is a great way to get fit and meet new friends.

An initiative of Mackay Regional Council, this ever-changing program provides a range of exciting physical activities and is free of charge.
