This is our 8th Blitz Event! Over the course of 2018 – 2020 we have collected more than 38,000 kg of waste from Melbourne’s waterways, stopping the lifecycle of plastic and polystyrene from further degrading into our waterways and harming our precious wildlife.

On land or on water, you can be part of our story of reducing the impacts of litter on your Yarra and working towards protecting the health of all that call the catchment home.

This event is in partnership with the ANZ Community Foundation.

* Yarra Riverkeeper members are given first priority to kayaks, you can sign up to become a member here.

Our ticketing system will be a little different this year!

To help keep physical distancing restrictions in place we have allocated tickets per activity. You can choose between:

1. Litter picking by foot: This is for those who are looking at walking along the river / on land and collecting rubbish

2. A walking tour / orientation: Join us on an educational tour of the area

3. Kayaks (double or single): Reserve a kayak and paddle against plastic! Please note that Yarra Riverkeeper members are given first preference to our kayaks. You can sign up to become a member here

Can’t make the event? Donate $15 and you can help remove approximately 1kg of litter from the Yarra and its parks
