Lawn bowls is a very popular sport in Australia, and is accessible to almost everyone.
As well as being a great form of physical activity, lawn bowls is also a wonderful social activity. You can meet more people in your local area and make new friends. People who take part in lawn bowls develop skills and coordination, which not only improves their fitness, but also helps their confidence and self-esteem.
Moreland has a number of Lawn Bowls clubs who are always open to new members. New members are welcome to play casually/socially or join in the pennant competition.

Gardening is a healthy way of maintaining your fitness and is an activity that can be as strenuous or gentle as you want it to be as you can carry out tasks that suit your capabilities.
Even if you have a disability or a medical condition which means your gardening activities need to be carefully considered, there are many things you can do, adaptations you can make and specialist equipment you can buy to make gardening accessible to you.
The community gardens have regular working bees and social BBQs. These are great opportunities for gardeners to mingle, share freshly grown produce, swap seeds and pitch in to help maintain the site.
