Sunday 7th March saw over 40 Port Douglas volunteers gather for Clean Up Australia Day. They split into 8 teams covering Four Mile Beach and the roadway form Port Douglas to Mowbray Bridge and collected over 50 large bags of refuse including an ancient “keep left” road sign. All volunteers enjoyed a free Barbecue afterwards by the Treetops lagoon pool, courtesy of the local branch of the CBA and the Rotary Club.
The organisers, form Port Douglas Rotary Club and Blue Dive, were thrilled with the large turnout and wanted to thank all those that turned up and in particular the great turn outs from the CBA, Pandanus Caravan Park, Latitude 16, Treetops Resort and Bendigo Bank. They are also confident that the event will be even bigger next year.
