5 Beaches Loop Clean-up – Cape York, QLD

Five Beaches Loop is at the tip of the Cape York Peninsula and Australia, and will be our last Cape York clean-up camping trip for 2019!

Due to the proximity of the community of Bamaga, shopping facilities are a short trip away by car. The camp area has both toilets and showers on site. We will set up our kitchen and prepare our meals together, so all food and equipment will be provided. All you need to bring is your sleeping gear (tents, blankets, pillow, mattress, etc).

We will meet and depart from Cairns at 8am on the 21st of September. Seats are limited so register early to secure your spot! 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!

Dates:
Travel Cairns to Somerset: 21st & 22nd September 2019
Clean-up: 23rd – 27th September

Chilli Beach Clean-up – Cape York, QLD

Chilli Beach is a 7km stretch of white tropical beach, fringed with coconut palms and impressive sand dunes, with magnificent pink sunrises that make this place paradise! Unfortunately, it is also another hotspot for marine debris in the remote Cape York region. We will rehabilitate the stretch of coastline over five days by removing, sorting and recording rubbish items from this picture-perfect paradise.

We will meet and depart from Cairns at 8am, traveling to Coen where we will spend our first night on the road. We will make some side stops over the two-day drive before reaching our campsite which we will call home for the next five days.
Seats are limited so register early to secure your spot! 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!

We will be in close proximity to the Aboriginal community of Lockhart River, so basic shopping facilities are a relatively short trip away by car. The camp area is very basic with only toilets onsite and we will be able to do a shower run throughout the week to QLD Parks and Wildlife’s base.
We will set up our kitchen and prepare our meals together, so all food and equipment will be provided. All you need to bring is your sleeping gear (tents, blankets, pillow, mattress, etc).

Dates:
Travel Cairns to Chili Beach: 10th & 11th August 2019
Clean-up: 12th – 16th August
Travel Chili Beach to Cairns: 17th & 18th August

Captain Billy’s Landing Clean-up – Cape York, QLD

Captain Billy’s is a very remote place far north on the eastern side of the Cape York Peninsula. For five days we will be collecting and sorting the rubbish from this exposed coastline, and if time allows a rewarded side trip to an amazing waterfall will follow to accomplishing work we achieved as a group out on the sands.

This is an event for the truly adventurous due to the remoteness of the area and the very basic facilities provided on site! A campsite area will be booked out for the event allowing us to spread out and set up a camp kitchen to prepare meals together, which will be provided by Tangaroa Blue. All you need to bring is your own sleeping gear (tents, blankets, pillows, mattress, etc).

We will depart from Cairns at 8am. Seats are limited so register early to secure your spot!

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!

This Source Reduction Plan workshop invites community members, local businesses, school representatives and government representatives to assist in the development of a local plan that stops litter at it’s source. Everyone is welcome and you don’t have to have experience in this field, just an interest in protecting our local environment and the Great Barrier Reef.

This workshop is part of the ReefClean project which is funded by the Australian Government’s Reef Trust and delivered by Tangaroa Blue and Conservation Volunteers Australia
The workshop is being supported by the Cook Shire Council Yuku Baja Muliku Junior Rangers Yuku-Baja-Muliku Land & Sea Rangers
