FAQs

Who is Keep Australia Beautiful?
We are a not-for-profit environmental organisation which was established in 1968 by Dame Phyllis Frost, a lady who had a vision for a litter-free Australia.

Keep Australia Beautiful is a federation and has an office in each state and territory, which are all run separately.

We are often confused with Clean Up Australia and associated with the late Ian Keirnan. However, we are a completely separate organisation and run programs throughout the entire year focusing on all aspects of sustainability.

What do we do?
Keep Australia Beautiful National Association runs a variety of programs.
