Fitzroy River Clean Up & Fishing Events

Recreational fishers clean up events!
Bring your boat and get ready for a day of fishing and cleaning up the Fitzroy River.

Rubbish in rivers threatens the health and number of local fish. To help local marine life (and the Great Barrier Reef) we are asking local recreational fishers and their families to join our clean up events.

Fuel vouchers will be given to participating boat owners.
BCF vouchers will be given to those collecting rubbish.
The boat that collects the most rubbish will win a prize.
Bonus vouchers for those who attend both days.

This is your chance to make a big difference to your local environment.

Please bring your boat, hat and water bottle. Gloves, refreshments, refuse bags, nets, pickup devices and a skip will be provided.
