Physical Activity Survey


Wodonga Council is undertaking a refresh of the city's Physical Activity Strategy 2015-2020 to guide the development of recreation facilities, services and programs for the next two years. 

Wodonga Council developed the Physical Activity Strategy to encourage its residents to be more physically active and to provide the infrastructure, services and programs to enable this to occur.

The council plays a key role in the promotion, facilitation and encouragement of physical activity through strategic planning, built environments and implementing a range of community initiatives.

The Physical Activity Survey asks you about how much and what type of physical activity you do, what facilities you use, what can be improved, and what stops you from being more active. 

This will help us plan future services and programs, and improve infrastructure to get people more active, more often. 

The benefits of physical activity for both individuals and the wider community have been clearly identified, and include the prevention of injuries and chronic disease, connecting with the local community, and increasing people’s energy, self-esteem and confidence.

This survey will gather information on the range of exercise, recreation and/or sport activities people are involved in. By completing the survey you can go into the draw to win one of two $200 vouchers to a Wodonga business of your choice*.

Key terms used in the survey:

  • Organised physical activities: These include physical activities where there are rules or set patterns of behaviour for the activity. Examples include football, dance and other structured physical activity may or may not be organised by a club or association or other organisation.
  • Informal physical activities: These include physical activities where there are no rules or set patterns of behaviour for the activity. Examples include: walking, riding a bike, very active play, skateboarding etc.
  • Active travel: Active travel is defined as physical activity undertaken as a means of transport and not purely as a form of recreation. Examples include walking to school or riding to work. It is a great way to keep healthy and fit, save money and reduce your impact on the environment.
