Physical Activity permit

Physical Activity permit

As we prepare for the possible easing of restrictions to allow outdoor physical activity with more clients, we want Moonee Valley’s personal trainers, coaches, yoga and Pilates teachers, and all other physical activity practitioners, to get active outdoors and find their own place in our parks.

Moonee Valley is committed to supporting local businesses as COVID-19 restrictions ease, and we are waiving all Physical Activity permit fees.

If you are one of Moonee Valley’s physical activity practitioners and plan on running classes with four or more participants, you need to submit an application for a Physical Activity Permit but the permit will be provided free of charge.

Submit your permit application now and we will work with you to find the right place to keep your business operating in these challenging times.
