Department of Health & Human Services Premiers Active April
How it works
Now in its ninth year, Premier’s Active April continues to help Victorians join in the fun of increased physical activity.
What is Premier’s Active April?
Premier’s Active April encourages all Victorians to do 30 minutes of physical activity a day during April. It’s free, it’s fun and it’s part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to get more people active and healthy.
As a participant, you can log your daily activity in the mobile or web app and chart your progress throughout the month. You can also create and join teams, track the progress of team members and discover Events and Special Offers that are available in your local area.
In 2017, every Premier’s Active April participant will receive*:
10 free passes to a participating YMCA or local government recreation facility
a chance to win some great prizes including our major registration prizes of tickets to the 2018 Australian Open Tennis Finals*, a $1,500 bike voucher or a GoPro camera
a chance for your school to win sporting equipment and visits from high-profile sporting personalities
weekly email tips on healthy eating and being active
a range of benefits, prizes and resources for Schools and Workplaces participating in Active April.

What are the rules?
To participate in Premier’s Active April, you will need to Register. Registrations open on January 23 and will remain open until April 30, 2017.
Anyone can participate in Active April – friends, students, families, workmates or individuals.
Achieve online trophies simply by tracking your 30 minutes of daily activity using the mobile or web app. You can do the activity on your own, together as a family, with your friends, classmates or workmates. There are a variety of online trophies that can be achieved – for completing 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30 days of activity. Trophies are displayed in your online Trophy Cabinet, viewable by logging in. You can also print your trophies or share them on Facebook.
The 30 minutes of activity can be made up of any sort of physical activity, including incidental activity. You can accumulate your 30 minutes (or more) throughout the day by combining a few shorter sessions of activity of around 10 to 15 minutes each.
At the end of Active April we’ll ask you to complete a short survey. To be eligible for the survey prize draw, just complete and the return the survey by May 13, 2017.
