Event description
The Derwent River component of the Sydney & Hobart Clean Up is a major clean up of Hobart's iconic river.

About this Event

Tasmania is the place to be every New Years with several major yacht races converging in Hobart and coinciding with the local seafood festival. The Iconic Derwent River is the focus of this event as we clean it up to protect the wildlife of the southern ocean.

We are still working on full details, we just want you to SAVE THE DATE for now.

The event will be hosted at the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania and we will be working closely with local organisations such as Our Coast, Our Mission to organise several land clean ups if you don't want to hit the water.

Get a group of friends together, spend a day out on the boat, choose a bay, inlet or creek and pick up every bit of debris you can find. If you don't have a boat you can clean the beach.

If you're a local clean up crew, join the party by organising your crew to clean a bay as part of this event. We are happy to have you as a co-host so touch base with us and let us know you are joining in.

We will have one central base where we will have bags available. You can collect them in the days leading into the event or on the day. At the end of your clean up return your full bags to our central base. If you can't get there let us know and we will endeavor to collect the bags for you.

We will then have a big gathering at our base for anyone who wants to celebrate our the achievement of cleaning it up.

As I have said previously, there are a lot of details to be worked out so if you can help, then please contact Ian on 0412 932 808 or info@oceancrusaders.org We also need major sponsors for this event as a major event like this takes a lot of time and money to organise.

This event is part of the Ocean Crusaders Sydney to Hobart campaign. Yes we will be joining the fleet sailing south in the 75th running of the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race with an Ocean Crusaders vessel promoting the need to look after our oceans. This clean up will cap off events for the summer.
