Regular physical activity is an important part of being healthy and staying healthy. Council is committed to fostering a healthy and active community, particularly encouraging more families to be active together.

Scenic Rim's popular Be Healthy and Active (BHA) program has been getting hundreds of residents up, out and active since its inception in 2015 and will be back, bigger and better in 2018

BHA exists to offer free and low-cost sport, recreation, fitness and wellbeing activities over 12 weeks at locations across the region. The 2018 program will run from Monday 5 February to Sunday 29 April.

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.
