This Girl Can - Victoria

Council is a proud support of This Girl Can - Victoria, which aims to celebrate and support women to embrace physical activity in a way that suits them. We offered many free and low cost activities in April and May 2019 in partnership with local exercise and activity providers. Thank you for everyone who participated and got moving.

Healthy Active Living Guide

The Healthy Active Living Guide is a free booklet which provides up-to-date information on more than 100 healthy, fun programs and activities in Mount Alexander Shire. The programs in the guide are social, local, accessible and affordable for adults of all ages and abilities.

Even if you have not exercised for a while or have a chronic health condition you will find a group to suit your needs, from walking, or tai chi to music or community gardening.

Download the latest Healthy Active Living Guide or pick up your copy from key community locations around the shire including the Civic Centre in Castlemaine.

For more information about where you can collect your guide contact us.

Community lunches

Community lunches are a great way to enjoy a healthy and affordable two course meal in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

A number of community lunches run in the Shire during the school terms and everyone is invited to attend.

If you would like to get involved helping with the community lunches they also welcome volunteers.

To find out more information about community lunches check the Healthy Active Living Guide or visit the Castlemaine Community House website.
