Be inspired to get active, eat well and invest in your mental health with Corangamite's Eat Well! Move Well! Be Well! program!
Eat Well! Move Well! Be Well! is a program that aims to increase the number of Corangamite Shire residents involved in physical activity, healthy eating and good mental health.
With over 60% of Australians now overweight or obese, the program is designed to help create greater awareness and involvement in activities that help to improve the health and wellbeing of our community.
Activities are held by organisations and groups across Corangamite Shire and focus on nutrition, physical activity and positive mental health outcomes.

You! Gather your family, friends or go along yourself and make new friends - there is something for everyone!
