What Activities Can I Do? 

Now that the new normal is officially underway here in the NT, so too is Healthy Darwin's 2020 Dry Season Subsidised Activities program!

We are pleased to support a range of local suppliers to deliver low-cost physical activity sessions from Monday 29 June to the end of September so you can lead a healthy lifestyle, make new friends and enjoy the best that Darwin has to offer during the Dry!

All our subsidised activity suppliers have completed COVID-19 checklists; please contact them directly if you have any queries or concerns. The main things to remember are to bring your own water bottle, towel, and mat for any floor exercises, and stay home if you feel unwell or have been around anyone displaying flu-like symptoms.

Follow us here or on our Facebook page for updates.
