The National Walk Safely to School Day is now planned to go ahead on Friday 11 September, following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.
The Pedestrian Council of Australia originally promoted a Walk to Work day which was an unrealistic option for many people.
It helped create the view with some that the Pedestrian Council was full of zeal but lacked engagement with people it was trying to encourage to walk more.
The journey to school is one category of trip that has become highly dominated by cars, SUVs and utes.
Making short trips by walking or by bicycle is a key component of people getting incidental exercise and the trip to school is where many people develop habits that they take with them for the rest of their lives.
The fluctuating situation with COVID-19 may mean that the date of this event may have to be reconsidered.
