Date posted: 21 July 2014

The Northern Territory beach of Nhulunbuy has been named the overall winner in the Keep Australia Beautiful, Australian clean beaches awards 2014 at Currumbin, Queensland.

Nhulunbuy is located on the traditional lands of the Yolngu people and has around 4000 residents. The local community, including the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation and the Dhimurru Rangers, have taken on responsibility for managing the significant amount of beach litter, including lost fishing nets and marine debris that washes up on the beaches of Cape Arnhem.

Nhulunbuy were also the recipients of another award, the Dame Phyllis Frost litter prevention award.
