In 2012, four paddlers took on a challenge to paddle from Airlie Beach to Mackay, a distance of 120kms. The campaign was to raise awareness of the issues of plastic in our oceans. On the journey we stopped at a deserted beach for a quick clean up, picking up lots of plastic, most of it already degrading due to the sunlight. This was followed up with a paddle on Fraser Island and then Katherine Gorge in the Northern Territory.

In the future we plan to run more events so stay tuned for more details.
