ActiveSmart Koorda

Locals are invited to get active through new program. Koorda, it’s time to get active!

  • The Wheatbelt have the highest rates of overweight and obese adults at 75% compared with the combined State average of 66%.
  • Only 47% of the population in the Wheatbelt are active.

The Shire of Koorda is excited and proud to be collaborating with the State Government to bring ActiveSmart to our community. We’re excited to be part of ActiveSmart because we hope it brings people’s health to the front of their minds.

The Wheatbelt has the highest rates of overweight adults at risk of developing chronic disease, so we want to take on this challenge to encourage residents to become more active now and for the long term.

Koorda is one of 12 local governments helping Wheatbelt residents become more active. We’re all working with a common goal but it would be great if the Koorda residents joined together and showed the rest of them just how ActiveSmart we are!

ActiveSmart is a free active lifestyle program designed to increase people’s activity levels and change long term habits. Participants are encouraged to become more active and connected to others in the community.

Participants will be able to access personalised telephone coaching, as well as a range of information about opportunities to get active in the local area. This tailored approach moves away from the traditional focus on exercise, catering to different lifestyles and making getting active accessible for all.

There are some great free programs offered for those wanting to become more active! Get on Track ( and My Healthy Balance ( are just two great free programs in which you can join challenges to increase your physical activity.

For the men; check out Shed-it and Workplace Power on the Diabetes WA website ( These free programs are tailored specifically for men to increase their physical activity and help them choose healthier foods without cutting out all the things they love.

And we haven't forgotten the kids. Check out Nature Play WA ( for a free program which kids will love! It is all about getting kids to run, jump, climb, splash, invent and play!
