Plastic rubbish is degrading our waterways and killing our wildlife. This Clean Up Australia event will remove rubbish from the river and make it healthier, safer and more enjoyable to use.

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

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.

There's also a series of Hard Core Cleaning Days planned for the Georges River. Find out more. And, a clean up event planned for the Cooks River too.

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

If you're coming to the Georges River Paddle Against Plastic event, be advised there's very limited parking available at Lambeth Reserve. If parking is full in Lambeth Reserve, on-street parking is available on Lambeth St or Doris St. Please exercise extreme caution when walking towards the site, especially on Henry Lawson Drive. For BYO craft we recommend launching upstream or downstream of Lambeth Reserve to reach the event on water. Walkers may also choose to consider walking along the pathway from other park areas downstream.

In consideration of the ongoing threat of COVID 19 we ask that all participants follow the state government 'How to protect yourself and others' COVID19 government guidelines detailed, i.e.:

• Scanning and registering your contact details with the QR code at the event
