Event Details:
Join us for our first Cape York beach clean-up of 2021!

On the drive to Cape Bedford we will stop for a look around Cooktown and continue up to Elim Campground, which will be called home for the following five days.

This part of the country has eye-catching views of mountain-scapes and Rainbow Beach that resembles a massive colourful sand castle! Elim Campground itself is a cozy well-maintained area with toilets and cold showers available.

Volunteers are asked to bring their camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, pillow, mattress, etc), however Tangaroa Blue will provide food and cooking equipment.

Seats are limited so register early to secure your spot! Due to limited space on this clean-up, we will be conducting a short interview with interested volunteers.

Volunteers with their own 4WD vehicles are welcome to join our convoy to drive up to this event, or can meet us on site, just let us know.

COVID-19 restrictions and requirements
Tangaroa Blue will be adhering to the latest advice from the QLD Government on COVID-19 and social distancing guidelines. Prior to departure, participants will be asked to declare that they have not come from overseas or any other recognised COVID-19 hotspot in the past fortnight and that they have not displayed any COVID-19 like symptoms within 14 days of the trip departure date.

The event is part of the ReefClean program, aiming to clean-up reduce the volume of marine debris generated in or entering the Great Barrier Reef and threatening the health of the reef and its inhabitants.

ReefClean is funded by the Australian Government’s Reef Trust and is delivered by the Tangaroa Blue Foundation.
