Active Whittlesea

Communities that are physically active are more likely to be healthier communities.

Active Whittlesea Strategy

Active Whittlesea 2019-2028 will guide the planning and promotion of sport, leisure and recreation programs, services and facilities within the City of Whittlesea over the next 10 years.

Diversity is one of our greatest strengths, yet many groups (e.g. migrants, women and girls, people with a disability) experience significant barriers to participation — such as cost, transport and awareness.

This strategy aims to address these barriers to get more people active more often.

This Girl Can Victoria

CANCELLED: The City of Whittlesea has made the decision to cancel all non-essential events, activities and programs of any size for the foreseeable future to help stop the spread of coronavirus (COVD-19).

We have also asked community groups operating in the City to do the same in the interest of public safety and community reassurance.

Please continue following advice from DHHS on hygiene and safety practices to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Visit www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus for more. 

This Girl Can – Victoria is an empowering campaign from VicHealth, based on Sport England’s highly successful This Girl Can campaign.

This Girl Can Victoria week is coming to the City of Whittlesea between 23-29 March and there are plenty of opportunities for you to get active.
