City of Darwin - Darwin Safe & Active Routes to School

In Australia, the number of students actively travelling to schools is rapidly declining. Supporting active travel in children from a young age through their journey to school, can build lifelong healthy habits and support safer, more connected communities.

We offer a civic education program for primary and high schools.

National Children's Week celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities.
