South Australia's Billion Steps Challenge
What is the Billion Steps Challenge?
Wellbeing SA is excited to bring South Australians together to reach one billion steps.
We know that every step counts and the more we move, the more health benefits we reap! So, we encourage you to challenge yourself, your family, friends and workmates to log steps and stay motivated to help achieve our state goal.

Our members from South Australia have logged a grand total of 556,341,779 steps towards the 1,000,000,000 challenge goal!
How do I get involved?
Getting involved is easy and free:
- Sign up or login to be a 10,000 Steps member
- Track and log your steps and minutes of physical activity
- Spread the word with your family, friends and workmates!
Every step counts.
Tracking your steps is a great motivation to keep moving through the day. Set yourself a daily goal and use a pedometer, Fitbit, Garmin or other activity tracker to stay on track. Whether it's a planned walk that you do regularly or incidental movement across the day, the more you move - the better your body and mind will feel!

There are so many amazing places to walk here in SA, from our newly opened Myponga Reservoir, to our famous Mt Lofty and picturesque Morialta Falls - now is the time to get out and about with family and friends to reap the health and wellbeing benefits of South Australia’s first Billion Steps Challenge.
Good luck to everyone participating!
