A message from VicHealth…

Due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation in Victoria we have postponed This Girl Can Week 2020 until further notice. This decision is based on the most up-to-date advice from Victorian Department of Health & Human Services to help slow the spread of the virus.

The safety of our This Girl Can fam, our partners and all of our supporters is our absolute priority and we'll continue to support and inspire you to get active, even if it's from your lounge room.

We'll let you know when we have more info on a new date. For now, to stay updated on the latest information on COVID-19 in Victoria, visit

Want to get active? Not sure where to start? Take the first step with Hobsons Bay City Council and VicHealth as part of This Girl Can Week.

This campaign, held across Victoria from 23 to 29 March, aims to encourage more women to give physical activity a go, or return to exercise after a break.

Council is also promoting a series of free and low-cost activities throughout This Girl Can Week which are fun and tailored to women and girls who want to get active but aren’t sure about how to take the first step.

Last year’s This Girl Can Week events inspired one in seven women in Victoria to get active, and more than 285,000 Victorian women were more active after seeing the campaign.

 The following activities will be taking place in Hobsons Bay throughout the campaign:
