How much physical activity or exercise should I do for my age and which type?

‘MODERATE INTENSITY ACTIVITIES take some effort, but you are still able to talk while doing them. E.g. a brisk walk, recreational swimming, dancing, social tennis, golf, household tasks like cleaning windows or raking leaves, or pushing a stroller.

VIGOROUS INTENSITY ACTIVITIES require more effort and make you breathe harder and faster (‘huff and puff’). E.g. jogging, aerobics, fast cycling, many organised sports and tasks that involve lifting, carrying or digging.’

Below is a summary of Australia's Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines across all age groups.
