Find your 30

We’ve always been known as a great sporting nation – a country that glows with health and vitality. But lately, things have changed.

Move It Australia

We want every Australian adult to commit to at least 30 minutes of activity each day.

It’s not just Sport Australia – the Department of Health says adults aged 18-64 should accumulate 2.5 to 5 hours of moderate intensity physical activity or 1.25 to 2.5 hours of vigorous activity each week.

Children should accumulate at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity every day. This is backed up by advice from the Heart Foundation, Betterhealth, the Australian Medical Association and more.

How can you Find Your 30!

Find Your 30 is all about finding practical ways in which anyone can work half an hour of activity into their day. There are simple solutions, like walking the extra block to work, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, and getting the whole family active together.

Why should I Find My 30?

Finding your 30 minutes of physical activity a day can lead to a happier and healthier lifestyle for you and your family. Here’s why:

Brain Health
Exercise training can increase brain size and improve memory - reducing the risk of dementia.

Heart and Lung Health
Physical activity strengthens your heart and improves lung function – reducing your risk of coronary heart disease and heart attack.

Mental Health
Regular physical activity reduces the risk of depression and has a range of benefits for mental health.

Bone Health
Physical activity increases bone mineral density – important for bone strength; reducing risk of fractures and osteoporosis.

Social benefits
Organised physical activity creates opportunities for meeting new people and socialising.

Environmental benefits
Physical activity, as a form of active transport, reduces our carbon foot print.

"Sport participation by Australians is becoming increasingly passive. Australians need to put down the remote control and mobile devices and head outdoors for a half-hour walk".
