News - Minister supports Outdoors October 2018

02-Oct-2018

Outdoors WA welcomes the support of the Minister for Sport and Recreation for Outdoors October 2018

Minister Mick Murray said "After what has felt like a long and cold winter, it's time to get moving and head outside for Outdoors October."

"Western Australia's natural landscape is incredibly special, so if you're not a regular visitor to the outdoors, this is the time to get out and go for a walk, find a cycle path or take to the water."

"Being outdoors is not only good for your physical health but it's great for your mental wellbeing too, so why not try a new activity or just grab some mates for a game in your local park."

Armadale MLA Tony Buti who also attended the Outdoors WA Outdoors Ambassadors launch said "I am delighted to help launch Outdoors October for 2018. Outdoor exercise provides great physical, mental health and financial benefits.

"I try to run regularly but it is not necessary to get involved in intense activities.  A quick walk during the day or a bit of gardening in the great outdoors will improve fitness and mood and doesn't cost a cent."

The Ministerial media release can be found here.

Outdoors October encourages Western Australians to get outside and be active
 
Activities planned all over the State, with more information about what is happening in your local area at the Outdoors October website 
Outdoors October begins today with the month-long celebration of outdoor active recreation encouraging Western Australians of all ages to get outside, be active and take in the natural world around them.

Outdoors October celebrates WA's wonderful natural landscape, reminding people of the huge range of outdoor activities on offer - from hiking and riding, to snorkelling and camping.

Activities are planned all over the State to mark Outdoors October with many free, family friendly and designed for beginners.

The Outdoors October website - http://www.outdoorsoctober.com.au - has details on local events to take part in. People are encouraged to pledge to get outside, share their activities on social media, and get involved in the photo competition.

Outdoors October is organised by Outdoors WA, the peak body for outdoor activities in the State.
