Active Fest at Sturt Park

Bring your blanket or a chair to Sturt Park and enjoy Active Fest on Sunday, June 19.

The event kicks off at 10am, and the whole of the Broken Hill Community is invited to try some new activities and enjoy being outdoors in the park.

The Active Fest event encourages people of all ages to be more active now that COVID lockdowns have eased.

The NSW Office of Sport and the Broken Hill City Council funded the event.

Organisers have rounded up groups like Totem, PCYC, Tennis NSW, YMCA and other local sports and recreation providers to run activities throughout the day.


There will be activities and games like laser tag and inclusive opportunities for people with mobility restrictions or a disability to join in.

All activities are free, and there will be giveaways throughout the day.

Leroy Johnson and the Waterbag Band will be playing from lunchtime for those who want to sit back and enjoy some music.

Their music is a little bit of country plus a little bit of folk.

Totem will be running a series of learning to skate workshops on the day.

There are limited spaces for these workshops, so people should register on the Eventbrite website at (search for Broken Hill Skatepark – Active Fest Skate Workshop).

Landcare is offering tours of its facilities to encourage people into their gardens.

There will be demonstration classes kicking off with Family Zumba at 10:30am.

The YMCA has organised a Colour Run that will commence at 3pm.

Food is available for purchase at the event, and the day will conclude at 4pm.
