Clean Up Australia - kunanyi/Mt Wellington

People cleaning up rubbish on kunanyi/Mt Wellington

City of Hobart Bushcare will hold a special Clean Up Australia Day event on kunanyi / Mt Wellington on Saturday 2 March.

Most of our iconic mountain bushland is pristine and rubbish free, but the top of the mountain has a unique challenge. The wind whisks rubbish out of cars, hands, pockets and backpacks and deposits it in nooks, bushes, and rock crevices around the summit.

Last year saw 74kg of lightweight rubbish collected and the year before that 145kg! We sort everything into reusables, recyclables and rubbish.

So please come and help us keep our mountain beautiful and wild and enjoy the best view in Tasmania.

Please come prepared with warm clothes, a hat and closed shoes as the top of the mountain can get cold and windy.

In case of extreme wind or rain this event may be postponed to the following Saturday (9 March), or cancelled.

Meeting Point

Bushcare Team Leaders will have registration tables set up in the car park on the summit of Mt Wellington, which is accessed by driving to the very top of Pinnacle Road.

There will be signage and the team leaders will be wearing City of Hobart high-vis uniform with Bushcare name tags so that you won't miss us.

There will be a no-go zone and it is important that all volunteers have a site briefing and register before starting.
