Surfrider Foundation Australia cleans up Sydney Harbour

Some of the biggest names in Australian surfing will join hundreds of ocean lovers with Surfrider Foundation Australia to clean up one of the world’s most famous harbours.

Held in conjunction with Clean Up Australia Day, which is celebrated this year on Sunday, 3 March 2019, Surfrider aims to empower people to protect and improve their shorelines.

Surfers Tom Carroll, Rob Bain and Simon Anderson, actor Samson Coulter, model and environmentalist Laura Wells, and swimmer & surfer Maev Kerri are among those who will be taking to the waters.

“Rubbish has a major impact on the environment and natural beauty of our waterways,” Surfrider CEO Susie Crick said.

“On Clean Up Australia Day we will be in the water doing our thing. We are inviting everyone to bring their surfboards, surf skis, SUPs and canoes to help us clean up one of the most beautiful harbour’s in the world.”

Following the clean-up, volunteers will commemorate Clean Up founder Ian Kiernan AO, who created the iconic day and reminded us that ‘Change Starts with You.’

Over 29 years, Clean Up volunteers have donated more than 33 milllion hours, at over 178,000 locations across Australia. Together they have removed the equivalent of 350,000 ute-loads of rubbish.
