“Eating well and exercising are the keys to unlocking a healthy and happy life, the Real Festival demonstrates this in engaging and interesting ways,” said Cr Thain.

“Take part in one of the free exercise classes being held on the riverbank such as Zumba or Body Balance or jump into a dragon boat or kayak to experience the thrill of exercising on the water.

“There’s so much to see and do across the two-day program, I suggest everyone visit the website to start planning their day. Some of the activities require pre-registration, so while you’re online make sure you register to secure your spot.”

Limited parking is available at the venue, plan ahead and take advantage of the BUSWAYS Park & Ride shuttle. Learn more by visiting realfestival.com.au.
