Every Body, Every Place

Queensland Walks Month, September 2021

Our 2021 Queensland Walks Month theme ‘Celebrate Walking: Every Body, Every Place’ is designed to focus on walking for all, and in all places in Queensland.

We aim to encourage Queenslanders to share walking stories, emphasise the importance and value of walking, and highlight ways to improve the walkability of our neighbourhoods. Anyone can get involved. It’s fun and free. 

You can participate individually and you can get a team, group or workplace involved to help motivate each other to walk more in Queensland. Share your walking adventures and go into the draw to win a range of great prizes. Gather your people, share your walks.

We invite you to:
register, promote and get involved.

Absolutely love strolling around beautiful Burleigh morning, noon and night 🧡

The instigator of our walks is pretty much always our dog and we’re definitely much healthier and happier for having him to keep us in check! Here’s a pick of him taking us for our walk.

Sky above, earth below, peace within.

On our walk to the waterhole at Bluff Creek, we met a giant T-Rex!!

We love a nice weekend walk and a place we find really nice is Sir William Macgregor Drive at the University of Queensland. We can get there really easily on the city cat and it’s a nice, long and wide ...

My favourite thing about going for a walk is seeing all of the lovely flowers. Here are a few I saw on my walk today.

What is Queensland Walks Month designed for?

Queensland Walks Month is designed to improve the health of Queenslanders by encouraging walking every day, promote better walking environments for all and connect the wider Queensland walking community. Queensland Walks Month has a focus on walking for transport, recreation, health, tourism and community connection as well as a call to action in support of more walkable spaces and places in our local communities.

Queensland Walks Month is a free, state-wide, community-based initiative for all ages and abilities together. Anyone can get involved and register as an individual and in groups such as families, friends, workmates, clubs and organisations. All participants are eligible for a range of fantastic prizes (see terms and conditions).

Can I donate my prizes to a charity or cause?

Yes, you can. The winning team in 2020 generously donated their winnings to Rosie’s street van in 2020! If you are one of the lucky prize winners, you are welcome to discuss how this might work. The design of the catered lunch is to support local hospitality that may have been negatively impacted over the last year. By supporting local, you are also helping improve the walkability of your local neighbourhood.

How do I get in contact with the organisers?

For resources to promote Queensland Walks Month or to discuss options to engage your local community please contact info@queenslandwalks.org.au 

 Queensland Walks Month is hosted by Queensland Walks and supported by the Queensland Government, 10,000 Steps, Heart Foundation Walking and Snap, Send, Solve.

Queensland Walks is a community based membership organisation. We advocate for more walkable places for all ages and all abilities so that more Queenslanders will walk every day.

Our aim is to improve the conditions and profile of walking in Queensland. We support and encourage government, organisations and agencies to improve policy and funding priorities to enhance walking.
