Gold Coast’s Tallebudgera Beach named Australia’s cleanest beach

Gold Coast’s Tallebudgera Beach named Australia’s cleanest beach
May 13, 2011

Tallebudgera Beach on the Gold Coast has been named Australia's Cleanest Beach in the Keep Australia Beautiful, Australian Clean Beaches Awards 2010/11.

Tallebudgera Beach outshone entries from all States and the Northern Territory to also take out the Community Action & Partnerships; the Dame Phyllis Frost Litter Prevention and the Young Legends category awards.

According to the Australian Clean Beaches National Judge, Dr David Moy, Tallebudgera Beach is a well deserving winner of the national award due to the strong commitment to year-round positive action by a wide range of stakeholders to protect and enhance their local coastal environment.

Dr Moy stated "Tallebudgera Beach definitely raises the benchmark for other urbanised coastal cities and shires. The efforts of the local community, with strong support from the Gold Coast City Council, Griffith University's Coastal Management Centre, Tallebudgera Surf Life Saving Club and Education Queensland's Tallebudgera School, clearly demonstrates how communities working together can help protect their coastline and adapt to environmental and climate change issues".

Other winners were Port Vincent, South Australia; Bells Beach Victoria and Rockingham Beach, Western Australia.

The Australian Clean Beaches Awards are sponsored by Do The Right Thing, Steve Parish and The KAB Green Ribbon Program.
