Clean Up Straddie

We love Straddie. And we’re guessing by your visit to this page, that you do too.

Join us and the Straddie community on Sunday 5th March 2023 to clean up our island home, Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island).

Did you know that Australia alone now produces a whopping 2.5 million tonnes of plastic waste each year? Yikes! That equates to around 100kg of waste per person. Of this, around 130,000 tonnes of plastic ends up in our beloved oceans and beaches, including Straddie’s.

In previous years, the Community Clean Up Day on Straddie has been extremely successful, with on average, 350kg of rubbish (including micro plastics) collected during a morning’s session. Let’s all be a part of the solution! Come on foot or with your 4WD*. There’s lots of beaches to clean.

Details for Sunday 5th March:

We have registration points*** at all three Townships where you can register and collect your rubbish bag/gloves etc:

  • Point Lookout – meet at the top of South Gorge stairs
  • Amity – meet at Bo Beans Coffee
  • Dunwich – meet on the lawn at Straddie Brewing Co

Come anytime between 9am – 12 noon. Gloves and waste collection bags will be supplied courtesy of Straddie Brewing Co. Bring your hat & water bottle.

Low tide is 12:15pm so Main Beach and Flinders Beach will be perfect to drive on with the outgoing tide.
We’ll be putting on live music from 2pm on the Lawn at our brewery afterwards, so you can kick back and relax after your cleanup efforts, knowing that you’ve made a difference. We’ll even shout you a Straddie beer. Cheers to that!

20% discount code** for any registered volunteers that are bringing their car over on the car ferry. Thanks Sealink!
