Registered for Walk at Work Week in previous years?

Being mindful of the changing circumstances of Queenslanders due to COVID-19,  Queensland Walks has refocused the previously named Walk at Work Week to incorporate more than workplace walking.

The change to Queensland Walks’ Week #qldwalksweek will mean that we will be able to encourage more people to walk more often, COVID-safely and in all settings: workplaces, clinics, working from home, and even recreationally (after work, weekend bushwalking etc). You can get involved by starting a step challenge or tournaments, walking group, coffee trails and walking meetings.

Remember to social-distance and follow the latest Queensland Health advice. Get ready for Queensland Walks’ Week!
