Abstract

Closing the gap in Aboriginal and Torres Strait health disadvantage is one of the many initiatives that the Australian Government is continuing to struggle with. Regular physical activity is an important component of health. Calls from Indigenous community members on Cape York to have the opportunity to improve their health and wellbeing (Cape York Sustainable Futures, 2012; Apunipima, 2011) need to be heard by providers and government.
