Parkrun is not a race against other runners, but a five kilometre timed run – it doesn’t matter if it’s for fun or as part of a training plan. It offers an opportunity for the local community to come together on a regular basis, get physically active and enjoy the beautiful surrounds. Please come to jog or run together irrespective of your ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is free! Children and dogs are welcome, however, their participation must be supervised at all times.

    At 6am on ANZAC Day, in streets around Australia, hundreds of thousands of Aussies joined together in a powerful show of solidarity.

    As the sun peeked above the horizon the country stood united – in uniforms or pyjamas, wearing medals, poppies or sprigs of rosemary – to let Australia’s veterans know that their service and sacrifice will never be forgotten.
