My goodness what a pretty site… the Bourke Street stairs at Southern Cross Station have been transformed into a scenic garden to inspire us to ditch the escalator.

The Heart Foundation initiated ‘put a spring in your step’ as part of City of Melbourne’s ‘100 ways to move it Melbourne’ campaign.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle says:

Some people struggle to find time to get to the gym or go for a run or walk, so one of the most effective ways we can look after ourselves is to change our routines to incorporate more incidental exercise.

Using the stairs instead of the escalator is one way we can integrate exercise into our lives and that’s what this project aims to do.

VicHealth CEO Jerril Rechter said “We see the arts as a really exciting area to  inspire more physical activity. The initiative is about capturing people’s  imaginations and finding an unconventional way to make physical activity a more appealing choice.”

Next time you’re at Southern Cross be sure to take the scenic route.
