Heart Foundation Walking offers many types of walking groups all over Australia. Our program includes everyone regardless of age, fitness level, and location.

Walking for an average of 30 minutes or more a day can lower the risk of heart disease, stroke by 35% percent and Type 2 diabetes by 40%.

It’s not just your heart and muscles that benefit from walking.

Regular physical activity can help:

  • reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke

  • manage weight, blood pressure and blood cholesterol

  • prevent and control diabetes

  • reduce your risk of developing some cancers

  • maintain your bone density, reducing your risk of osteoporosis and fractures

  • improve our daily mood which cumulatively leads to better mental health
