In previous years, the event has attracted around 400 volunteers (spanning 230+ vehicle and 19 four wheel drive clubs across the state) who have banded together to collect general rubbish and flotsam and jetsam washed ashore by the tides and the weather systems that have hit the Queensland Coastline. Volunteers collected plastic such as netting, bottles, fish fluoro tubes and incredibly, thousands of toothbrushes during the three-day-long event.

Approximately 50 cubic metres of rubbish (985 garbage bags) has been collected during the weekend and the difference on the eastern beach alone, was astounding. This year the event will take place from 29 May - 01 June, with Four Wheel Drive Queensland coordinating registration.

with the backing of corporate sponsorship. If you'd like to be part of this year's Four Wheel Drive Queensland's Fraser Island Clean Up event, click here.
