Treasure Island Holiday Park helps clean up Australia

Treasure Island Holiday Park helps clean up Australia


Body: 

The team from NRMA Treasure Island Holiday Park will be out in force this Sunday 3 March for Clean Up Australia Day.

Around ten staff members from the award-winning holiday park will collect rubbish along Biggera Creek and adjoining parklands (Roy Neal  Reserve) from 2 to 4pm.

Park manager Brendan Brady said his team is keen to get their gloves dirty for this worthy cause.  

“Looking after the environment is an important aspect of our work here at the park,” he said.

“As a holiday park in a tourist destination, we act as ambassadors for our region. We work and live in such a beautiful environment and we want to preserve that and showcase it to the world!”

In 1989 an 'average Australian bloke' had a simple idea to make a difference in his own backyard -Sydney Harbour. This simple idea has now become the nation's largest community-based environmental event, Clean Up Australia Day. In the past 20 years, Australians have devoted more than 24 million hours towards the environment through Clean Up Australia Day and collected over 200,000 tonnes of rubbish. Clean Up Australia Day is a simple way to take action to clean up, fix up and conserve our prized Australian environment.

Anyone wanting to join the Treasure Island crew is welcome to meet at the corner of Annette Court and Freeman Street (Roy Neal Reserve) Biggera Waters with appropriate clothing, shoes and gloves. Or sign up on the website.
