Bring your kayak, SUP or canoe, and help Georges Riverkeeper to clean up Scarborough Ponds and Tonbridge Creek which is an important fish nursery for the Georges River.


Georges Riverkeeper's Paddle Against Plastic event has been postponed due to recent rain. We will reorganise the event for a date and time that's more suitable for the activities planned. We will announce the new date soon.

Please hold on to your tickets until the new date is announced. If the new date doesn't suit you and want a refund, you can do this by going to "Tickets" in your Eventbrite account, selecting the ticket you want a refund for, click "Request a refund" and follow the prompts.

Meeting place: Scarborough Park Playground, along Barton St, Kogarah NSW 2217. We will be set up at the model boat pontoon.

This family-friendly Clean Up Australia Day event will remove the litter to make it nicer for everyone to enjoy and safer for fish and other animals that call it home.

Don't have a paddle craft? Hire one on the day for a small fee or join the walkers cleaning up the banks.

To pre-register and book a craft, simply choose the ticket that refers to what you need, and we will see you on the day. Bookings essential.

Book now!

Gloves, pick up sticks and bags will be provided on the day. Make sure you bring sun protection, water and sturdy shoes that you don't mind getting wet.

Parking is available on both sides of Barton Street as well as Scarborough Lane.
