Game On! Program: 1 May - 30 June 2018
The 2018 Commonwealth Games may be over, but it's Game On! for the Scenic Rim from 1 May - 30 June, as we kick off the extension to our popular Be Healthy and Active program. During this time, you can enjoy free and low-cost health and wellbeing activities across the region each week, providing opportunities to build more inclusive, engaged and active communities.
Residents of Beechmont, Rathdowney, Kooralbyn, Kalbar, Mount Alford and Aratula, as well as Boonah, Beaudesert, Canungra and Tamborine Mountain and their surrounding areas, will have an opportunity to kick some health and fitness goals in coming months.
Program highlights include Mini Commonwealth Games at Boonah and Beaudesert for the under 14s, as well as traditional Indigenous games for children and adults of all ages and abilities, offering an insight into Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.
The Game On program is delivered under the Queensland Government's Embracing 2018 Legacy Program for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and is funded by the Australian Government.

Scenic Rim Health and Wellbeing Plan
In 2010 Scenic Rim Regional Council prepared two strategic plans - a Social Plan 2010-2020 and a Sport and Recreation Plan 2010-2020. Both plans recommended a review in 2015. As the two plans shared many common goals and objectives, the review resulted in the merging of the two documents into the Scenic Rim Health and Wellbeing Plan 2015-2020 which better reflects the social, health, sport and recreation needs of the region.
The two original plans will remain important reference tools for Council and the community. They contain valuable consultation information and data to track overall trends and performance.
Primary Health Networks
Primary Health Networks have been established to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes, and improving coordination of care to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place at the right time.
