With social distancing restrictions in place that will limit the opportunities for body contact sports and team events, why not get outside and try an outdoor activity instead –  see the list below for the top ten activities you can do by yourself or with the family.

Fresh air and sunshine are good for both your physical and mental health too!

The following are ten great activities to do outdoors:

  1. Walk or jog around your neighbourhood
  2. Go for a bike ride
  3. Go to a beach or lake
  4. Take your dog for a walk
  5. Throw a frisbee at the park
  6. Go fishing
  7. Go on a bushwalk
  8. Climb a tree
  9. Fly a kite
  10. Visit a National Park
