Keep it Clean – Illawarra – NSW

December 10, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm AEDT

Keep it Clean for Illawarra!

Join like-minded people who share a love for fishing and a commitment to environmental stewardship to clean up Elliot Lake and Bensons Creek.. Together we’re not just picking up litter, we are creating change and inspiring others to follow suit.

When you dedicate your time to cleaning up our shorelines and riverbanks, you’re not only preventing plastic and debris from harming marine life, you’re also creating change and inspiring others to follow suit.

Head to the Keep it Clean project page for more tips on how to make a positive impact and be a responsible fisho.

This event is also a Yabby Trap Drop Spot. Bring down any old and unwanted opera house yabby traps and swap it for an Oar-Gee Plow lure at the event to support sustainable fishing practices. Opera house nets are now illegal in NSW and those collected will be recycled into useful products for anglers, with the proceeds being used to support habitat restoration.

Please meet in the Warilla Sports Club carpark– look for the OzFish Flag! Click here for a Google Maps link of the location.

Registration is essential. We hope to see you there.
