It details key cost-effective government, non-government and community actions that will increase physical activity levels in Australia from 2010 to 2013.

Physical inactivity is a major contributor to the burden of chronic disease, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Physical inactivity is also a significant contributor to the epidemic of overweight and obesity.

Federal, state and local governments, supported by public and private stakeholders, need to work together to create a long-term strategy to change current patterns of physical activity in Australia. The Heart Foundation encourages this collaboration and has produced 'Blueprint for an active Australia' to help governments and their key partners to increase physical activity levels in Australia.
