Five Rocks Clean Up 2016

Five Rocks Clean Up 2016

Five Rocks, located 60km north of Yeppoon is a special place and an internationally significant site loved by fishermen, campers and 4wd enthusiasts. A community event was coordinated by Surfrider Foundation (Capricorn and Sunshine Coast branches), Cleanwater Constructions and supported by Capricornia Catchments, QPWS and Fitzroy Basin Association Inc (FBA) through funding from the Australian Government's National Landcare Programme to raise awareness and encourage responsible use of the area's natural assets. 50 people camped overnight and walked the beaches to remove debris that had washed up along our shoreline. We can all make a difference to the state of our beautiful coastline. Small actions made by many, have a huge impact - so we encourage you to collect three items of litter next time you are on your beach walk. FBA would like to acknowledge and thank Kash Walker for creating this excellent and inspiring video.
