Why I walk

Walking is one of the easiest and most inexpensive forms of exercise.  It’s also one of the most popular in the Wyndham community. And with the warmer weather and daylight saving approaching, it’s a great time to get outdoors and get moving.

Healthy adults should walk 10,000 steps a day; that’s 8 kilometres or approximately 1 hour 40 minutes of walking.  But even 30 minutes a day is very good for you.

Try a walking group near you

Walking can be a social event, particularly if you join one of Wyndham’s free walking groups. It’s a great way to keep fit, form new friendships and it makes walking even more enjoyable. Here are just a few easy walks, suitable for all abilities. You can also start your own walking group with friends or neighbours.
