These awards encourage, motivate and celebrate sustainability achievements of rural and regional communities across Australia. Each year state and territory winners are announced between August and November. They then receive a visit from the Australian Tidy Towns judge and the Australian Tidy Towns Awards are presented in April/May.
Tidy Towns has been running nationally since 1990, and began in Western Australia in 1968.
