Queensland, this one's for you!

10,000 Steps and Queensland Walks are excited to bring the state together during Queensland Walks Month 2023 for a fun Steps Challenge.

We are inviting every person in Queensland to join us from 1st August and log as many steps together as we can, while we walk and explore our beautiful state! Walk, run, roll or stroll with your family, friends and workmates and make every step count.

Last time we had a state-wide challenge, we reached 1 billion steps in 32 days, can our Queenslander members beat this in 2023?

How do I make my steps count?

Get ready to log your steps and join the monthly challenge. Any steps and physical activity you track in your account will automatically contribute to the state’s progress. Set your step goal on your Dashboard and start walking, running, rolling, strolling, cycling or swimming. You can enter time in minutes of activity for other activities which may not be counted in steps.

Choose when and how you can fit physical activity into your day or start by looking for those small ways you can make active choices. Need more inspiration? Visit 10,000 Steps website for tips on how to boost your activity.

About Queensland Walks Month

Queensland Walks Month is a free, online celebration of walking, running, rolling and strolling which aims to improve the walkability of our beautiful state.

Walk, run, roll or stroll anywhere in Queensland during August and tell us about your walking experiences, share your photos and reels or engage in our online discussions to help improve the ‘walkability’ of your neighbourhood and favourite walk spaces for people of all ages and abilities.

Every body, every place.

Learn more about Queensland Walks Month on the Queensland Walks website.

How can I track my physical activity?

Tracking steps and minutes of physical activity can motivate us to find more ways to move throughout the day! Every move counts!

Connect your Fitbit, Garmin or Google Fit accounts in the Tracker Connections section of your profile at 10000steps.org.au.

Connect with Apple Health on the 10,000 Steps mobile app for iOS devices, or Health Connect on Android. Steps and activity tracked using pedometers, smart phones and other devices can be entered manually on the website or mobile app.
