Go on, get outside in WA's awesome outdoors!

Outdoors October is an initiative between Outdoors WA and the Department of Sport and Recreation, with the month dedicated to encouraging active recreation amongst nature.

In it’s third year, the month long promotion aims to increase participation in outdoor recreation and provide opportunities for people to try new activities.

Last year local clubs, not-for-profit recreation organisations, as well as local and state government coordinated over 150 events to encourage children, youth, families, elite athletes and seniors from all areas to participate in outside play and recreation. 

The brand new website is packed with new and improved activities to get involved with throughout the month. From canoeing try-out days, mountain biking lessons, Bibbulmun Track guides and caving adventures, there really is something for everyone. Many stakeholders have got creative too, with ghost walks, dragon boating and camp cooking for kids.

Take your family, invite your friends and enjoy something from the wide range of activities on their website. Go to www.outdoorsoctober.com.au for all the information and fun you can handle in the outdoors.

Post your Outdoors October adventures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #outdoorsoctober, #perthoutdoors and #getoutside
