Clean Up Australia events will take place across the Bass Coast and South Gippsland this weekend.
Check out the full list below:
The Cape Eco Village
Sunday, March 7, 10am to 11am.
We live in a new sustainable development on the beautiful South Gippsland coast in Victoria.
Our Eco village has many wetlands, walkways and bike paths. We are a 10-minute walk to the beach and we have an extensive range of bird and wildlife living in our estate.
For the safety of our wildlife and the enjoyment of our residents and visitors, we want to ensure we keep our natural habitats in pristine condition. This event is a way to achieve this and at the same time build on our community relationships. The residents in our eco village are passionate about where and how we live.
Meeting Point: The community noticeboard on the corner of Sunlight Boulevard and Trumpeter Street

Cowes Foreshore and Jetty Triangle Clean Up
Sunday, March 7, 9am to 12pm.
We’re excited to host Phillip Island’s third Clean Up Australia Day Coastal Clean Up.
Over the past two years over 200 volunteers have collected over 410kg of rubbish from Cowes beach foreshore and seafloor!
Please note – we’re scaling the event back a little this year due to Covid – unfortunately we won’t be hosting a seafloor snorkel/dive clean nor will we have the trash trade for food and drinks – we hope to bring this back in 2022.
This is a disposable plastic-free event.
Clean ups will be held along Cowes Beach to the Yacht Club and to Erewhon Point.
Meeting Point: Cowes Foreshore Jetty Triangle.
Site Supervisor: Lauren Barker
