Last week of the school holidays - Why not Cycle or Walk around Lake Burley Griffin! 🚶‍♀️🚴‍♂️

It’s super easy to get around. Choose shorter or longer routes and pass by some of Canberra’s major tourist attractions on the journey.

Stop at the Boundless Playground and let the kids run/climb to their hearts content.- Kings Park, Wendouree Dr, Parkes ACT 2600

Winter Walk to School Week aims to encourage students to walk to school even in the colder months. ❄️🧤

Why not plan some events for your school to encourage students to walk: a whole of school walk or walking relay, a healthy breakfast as they walk into school, a walk and wear your "craziest beanie" day.
