From April 9–13, we will have the chance to take our support from the couch to the lanes when the Australian Swimming Championships head to the Brisbane Aquatic Centre. It’s not just about the laps, either – this year the event is taking on a festival-style atmosphere with the opening of a brand-new Centre Lane entertainment precinct. more

We all have trouble staying in shape when the cooler months keep us indoors, but it's a whole lot easier when the exercise is actually fun and also free. South Bank’s program of low-impact classes can keep the belly at bay and make you feel great well into the change of seasons. more
