The Great Northern Clean Up - Broome

September is a great time to take to the streets, beaches and bushland of Broome as part of the 2019 Great Northern Clean Up.

Created in 2009 after feedback that cleaning up in March was too hot for communities north of the Tropic of Capricorn, in the past decade the annual event has attracted an estimated 3,719 West Australians who have removed around 322 ute loads of rubbish from 146 registered locations.

This equates to more than 7000 hours of volunteer time, donated by individuals concerned about removing rubbish after the peak tourist period and prior to the cyclone season.

This year Broome is taking part and community members can either nominate their own site to clean up between Friday 20 and Sunday 22 September at the Clean Up Australia website at the link below or attend the Shire of Broome site at the rear carpark of Paspaley Plaza in Chinatown from 8am-10.30am on Sunday 22 September.

  • Attendees are asked to bring their own closed-in shoes, hats and gloves. Bags and drinking water will be provided.
