We want Australians to get together and get moving. Our favourite partners are on board to bring you free, fun and social activities. Our goal is for 1.5 million Aussies to feel happier and healthier through taking part in Free + Active in the next five years.

What is Medibank Free + Active?

It's free!

The clue’s in the title. Our events are about getting together, not spending money.

It's fun

Choose something you know you’ll love, or take the challenge and try something new.

It's (probably) close by

With events all around Australia, there’s bound to be something nearby.

It's always happening

Once you start, it’s simple to keep going, especially when you get friends involved.


Free, weekly 5k timed runs or walks happen all over the world thanks to parkrun. Join one and discover a new personal best.

Medibank Feel Good Program

It’s hard to beat the feeling of being part of a group. Medibank Feel Good Program knows that, so they’ve got lots of group classes, like yoga and Zumba that you can join.

And more!

We’re always looking to add new activities. If you’ve got an idea, please let us know.
