It rolls around every year, but never loses its importance.
Clean Up Australia Day is back this Sunday 4th March along the Cairns Esplanade.
With the help of Cairns Aquarium Clean Up Crew, locals will get rid of a lot of rubbish that ends up in our waterways that presents a real threat to our marine life and ecosystems.
Rubbish is now found in almost every marine area on earth, and the problem is getting worse.
Days like this, encourage everyone to do their part by collecting and removing rubbish from every nook and cranny.
