Professional development and support for the PDHPE community.

ACHPER in Australia

The Australian Council for Health, Physical Education and Recreation (ACHPER) is a national professional association representing people who work in the areas of Health Education, Physical Education, Recreation, Sport, Dance, Community Fitness or Movement Sciences.

ACHPER is a membership based non-profit organisation, governed by a volunteer board comprising professionals from educational and community sectors. We have a strong network of state and territory branches that serve members through a range of professional activities.


ACHPER NSW is committed to implementing professional learning programs and resource development projects that support quality delivery of PDHPE in primary, secondary and tertiary settings. Funds generated from our activities are used to fund further programs and projects and ongoing member services.
