The Burdekin Be Active Advisory Committee is an Advisory Group to the Burdekin Shire Council. The Committee consists of various members from organisations including Queensland Health, Queensland Education, Queensland Police Services, Burdekin Shire Council, Burdekin Centre for Rural Health, Burdekin Community Association, Northern Region Sport & Recreation and NQ Region Good Sports.
The Committee promotes the health and well being of Burdekin residents and has been instrumental in the establishment of the Burdekin Be Active Trail (a pathway that currently extends from Anzac Park through to Plantation Park). The group also coordinates the annual ‘10,000 Steps’ Program, Get Fit For Free Program and recently completed the installation of exercise equipment and water fountains in Ayr and Home Hill Parks.
In September 2013 the Burdekin Be Active Advisory Committee facilitated a partnership between Burdekin Shire Council and Good Sports; a community program of the Australian Drug Foundation. Good Sports is a great free program that will help sporting clubs and associations develop strategies for the best practice around alcohol management, healthy eating and create a safe, family friendly environment for participants and spectators.
