 The Australian Clean Beaches program awards communities who actively work for a cleaner, more sustainable coastal environment. Awards are presented to local councils, volunteers, surf lifesaving clubs, rangers and other community groups who implement initiatives that care for dunes, waterways, protect habitats, educate the community, reduce litter, preserve and value culture and heritage, and support tourism.

The 2013 winners, Currumbin, will be handing over their title to one of the following finalists:

  • Rainbow Bay, Queensland
  • Fingal Head, New South Wales
  • Whyalla, South Australia
  • Raspins Beach, Tasmania
  • Nhulunbuy, Northern Territory

The morning will be attended by representatives of State and Territory finalists, Averil Bones who judged each beach, MC Scott Lamond of ABC Gold Coast, as well as staff from the Keep Australia Beautiful network.

Official event sponsor for the Australian Clean Beaches Awards 2014 is City of Gold Coast, and venue supporter Currumbin Beach Vikings Surf Life Saving Club. Keep Australia Beautiful is seeking category sponsorship for this worthwhile program.
