Richardsons Beach wins clean beach award


Richardsons Beach, one of Freycinet National Park's many beautiful beaches, was the Overall Winner of the Keep Australia Beautiful Tasmania Clean Beaches awards this year.

Lona Turvey and Cynthia Maxwell-Smith,  from the Glamorgan Spring Bay Council presented the award to Freycinet park staff. While the award is for a clean beach, it is more significantly,  an acknowledgement of those that partner with each other to care for a beach.  The lodge, local residents, campers and school groups all contribute to looking after the beach with the Parks and Wildlife Service, in conjunction with the Friends of Freycinet group, which helps in maintaining the beach access and visitor facilities.  A certificate of appreciation was presented for the caring campers who look after the beach during their annual camping trips.
