Brisbane Dive Academy is conducting an underwater cleanup in conjunction with Clean Up Australia Day. Last year we cleared out miles of fishing line and tens of kilograms of sinkers, but had to leave behind a large number of glass bottles and other debris. This year our aim is to clear out as much of the glass and other dangerous debris as we can.

For more information and costs (a minimum charge to cover air fills) contact us at the Dive Centre of 07 3890 0342.

I hope you will join us again this year to do our part in helping our local river.  We usually meet at the Smithfield Commons and normally if you arrive early enough (9 or so) there are plenty of free canoes to use to get out on the water and help pick up debris.  We also have the opportunity to pick up the debris around the bridge and common areas if you arrive too late for a canoe.  Please join us on this cleanup day, the rewards are great.
