Amazing weekend activities that will help you get healthy - Human Performance Centre

Summer is just around the corner! The days have already started to warm up, so we’re going to need to start getting active and healthy.

Gym life isn’t for everyone but that doesn’t mean that you can’t still exercise.

We’ve compiled a list of fun activities that you can do that will keep you on track to living a healthy lifestyle.

 

Natural Bridge Circuit – Springbrook National Park

A sealed circuit track takes you through the forest, across Cave Creek and into the arched cave to witness the waterfall plunging from above. At night the cave is illuminated by thousands of glow-worm’s tiny green lights.

 

Witches Falls Circuit – Tamborine National Park
