It’s safe to say that if you’re visiting the Gold Coast, you’ll be experiencing its famous beaches. The stretch of pristine coastline has BeachCare to largely thank. BeachCare regularly hold volunteer sessions for the community to participate in rubbish collection, learn more about the dune systems and coastal management strategies while lending a hand with the ocean as your backdrop.

Koala Tree Planting

Join the Beaches to Bushland Landcare Program on a community Koala tree planting day and help protect, restore and enhance the Gold Coast’s natural areas. By helping this program, you will learn more about the Gold Coast’s Koala population and take away tips on how you can support local koala conservation.

Clean Up Australia Day

If you’re holidaying on the Gold Coast on or around 4 March, 2018, you can join hundreds of thousands of other Aussies at the annual Clean Up Australia Day campaign. Join a local group on their clean up or simply start your own as you help to conserve the Gold Coast’s environment by picking up some rubbish at a local park, beach, bushland or street.
