Be kind Maroondah

Did you know that one act of kindness each day can reduce stress, anxiety and depression? Recent statistics show that social isolation is having a negative impact on mental health with requests for mental health assistance in Australia increasing by as much as 40%.  

During these difficult times, it is important that we are kind to ourselves, to others and to our local businesses. See more about Be kind Maroondah for tops on looking after yourself and others.

Learning from home

Out with your dog?

While walking your dog, make sure they are on a lead in on-lead areas, and:

  • even in an off-leash area, please keep your dog on a lead on a shared path or within 15 metres of: playgrounds or children’s play equipment, barbecue or picnic facilities, or organised sporting events or training sessions.
  • please clean up after your dog - use as a bag, pouch or pooper-scooper, to remove and dispose of any dog waste 
  • remember, our ovals are not off-leash dog parks.
