Ararat: Active City

Official Launch of Ararat Active City.

The Ararat Rural City Council proudly launched Ararat Active City on 25th June, celebrating its transformation from one of the most obese towns in Australia, to one that embraces an active lifestyle. Thank you for being a part of this journey. We see the difference it has made over the past 18 months, and we know we can do better.

That’s why we are taking Ararat Active City a few steps further. On top of an Active Lifestyle, we are introducing Active Community, Active Economy, and Active Environment. It will be our way of life, with exciting initiatives taking shape and falling into place. Together we can transform Ararat into Victoria’s most attractive rural city!

Ararat’s first boot camp,
and not the last.

Our inaugural boot camp was a great success. Every crunch and every grunt worked up a good sweat. If you were with us, thank you for participating! We are now more inspired than ever to be an Active City.

Next boot camp coming soon.

Leave us your details and receive the latest updates on our Boot Camp in October.

The Active8 Challenge has begun.

Eight individuals have been selected for the Active8 challenge. Cheer them on as they work towards their fitness goals, assisted by a personal trainer and a mentor from The Biggest Loser. We will celebrate the results of their hard work at a Gala event on October 11. Expect a surprise host and a host of surprises. More details coming soon.
