Heart Foundation WalkingHeart Foundation Walking

Did you know Townsville City Council is a host organisation for Australia’s largest free community-based walking network? Heart Foundation Walking makes regular physical activity enjoyable and easy. The walking groups come in many different sizes and various times, distances, days and levels of difficulty. If you do not live near a group or prefer to walk on your own, you can join as a ‘Virtual Walker’ and track your progress.

To register as a walker and check where Townsville walks are visit the Heart Foundation website and search by postcode.
