2019 Clean Up Australia Day

Start date: February 25, 2019

End date: March 3, 2019

2019 Clean Up Australia Day registrations are now open, so it’s time to check out rubbish hotspots in your neighbourhood and challenge your friends and family to make 2019 the year when change starts with you.

Businesses are encouraged to focus their action on Clean Up Day – Tuesday 26 February with Schools running their own Clean Up on Friday 1 March and youth and community groups taking to their streets over the weekend of 2-3 March.

Participating in one or more of these events is the perfect opportunity to join with family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to remove all the rubbish accumulating in your local park, bushland, beaches and waterways before it kills our wildlife.

Online registrations are free and now open at

Urging individuals and groups to continue the impetus that Clean Up founder Ian Kiernan AO created through his efforts Terrie-Ann Johnson, Managing Director of Clean Up Australia, is keen to remind us that every Clean Up volunteer is Ian’s successor – and that any change starts with you.

“Clean Up Australia Day is the nation’s largest community mobilisation event, and 2019 is the perfect time to band together in Ian’s honour, celebrate what has been achieved, show your support for his vision and o continue his dream to Clean Up Australia,” said Terrie-Ann.

“Ian firmly believed that every single one of us can and should make a difference. Volunteer action was his amazingly simple idea, his dream and his inspiration. His passion was working alongside his fellow Aussies as we clean up our environment and/or reduce waste before it is a problem. Moving into the future I urge all Australians to take up the challenge – become Ian’s successor and continue the momentum he fostered.”

“Change starts with you. The key to success is stopping litter becoming rubbish. There are so many actions every one of us can take to help reduce the 8 million tonnes of plastic entering our oceans worldwide each year.”
“So why not book-mark today in your journey and join us for a 2019 Clean Up.”

If picking up Rubbish is not your thing, you can still be involved by making a donation.

Clean Up Australia is owned by the community. 100% of monies raised through donation is allocated to the purchase of materials provided free of charge to community, school and youth groups across the nation all year round.

“So, whether you are going to make a donation or get together to clean up your local environment –change starts with you!”

Over the last 29 years volunteers have donated more than 33 million hours, at over 178,000 locations across the country. Together they have removed the equivalent of 350 thousand ute loads of rubbish across Australia.

Bible League Australia Information Sessions

Start date: March 12, 2019

End date: March 14, 2019

Last year Bible League Australia hosted our first Update Events in Hobart, where we shared stories from the field of how God is transforming lives. I had the pleasure of cooking a meal for our wonderful supporters as we celebrated God’s calling on us to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

This year we are excited to be returning to Hobart where I will again be cooking a meal for you and update you on just how powerfully God is impacting lives through the ministry of Bible League.

There are three dinners and a lunch to choose from, with each event strictly limited to 20 seats. We expect them to be fully booked, so I’d recommend you reserve your place quickly.

What can you expect on the evening?

  • Firstly, I will be cooking a meal for you!
  • I will also update you on my recent trips to the field where God is bringing many people to faith in Him;
  • You will also be able to connect and fellowship with other supporters of Bible League;
  • And you’ll have the opportunity to partner with us financially to plant much needed Bibles and biblical resources in the hands of people who can’t afford or access them.

Details of the venue will be provided once you RSVP by 1st March 2019, – seats are limited.

But it is in Mount Nelson, so is convenient for everyone in the Hobart area.

Tuesday, 12th March for dinner at 7pm
Wednesday, 13th March for lunch at 12pm
Wednesday, 13th March for dinner at 7pm

Bream Creek Show

Date: March 16, 2019

In 1897 the tiny town of Bream Creek hosted its inaugural community show in the pavilion at Coppington. The focus was the judging of farm produce, from butter to bread, needlework and cookery. It was an unequivocal success.

Today, the Bream Creek Show is an iconic Tasmanian event. It takes place on the third Saturday of March each year and has kept at its heart the old-fashioned country values under which it was conceived.

The next Bream Creek Show will be on March 16th, 2019.

True to our belief that a wonderful family day out shouldn’t cost the earth, we try to keep our entry prices as low as possible. Entry costs $10 per adult/$5 per child or $25 per family (2 adults, and up to 4 children).
