Member for Currumbin, Jann Stuckey MP has congratulated residents and stakeholders of Currumbin for their stellar efforts that have resulted in Currumbin being declared by Keep Australia Beautiful as ‘Australia’s Cleanest Beach’ 2013 at a ceremony in Perth today.

“I am absolutely thrilled to see the hard work of the local community acknowledged and rewarded by this national title,” Ms Stuckey said.

“Residents of Currumbin are well aware we have something pretty special here on the southern Gold Coast, and it is fantastic to see that Keep Australia Beautiful agrees.

“Congratulations must be extended to everyone involved for their combined efforts that have resulted in Currumbin being declared Australia’s Cleanest Beach 2013.  We are a tight-knight and proud community.

“I extend an invitation to all Australians to visit our little slice of heaven, with our world-famous beaches just one of the numerous attractions we have on offer here.

 “From our stunning foreshores to the hidden treasures of our valleys, Currumbin is blessed with natural attributes and caring, community minded residents.

 Keep Queensland Beautiful CEO, Rick Burnett, said the win was fantastic recognition for the efforts of the local community and the Gold Coast City Council, and presented another great opportunity for Queensland tourism.

“I would like to thank the local volunteers in the beach-care groups, and all those local residents who take pride in keeping this wonderful beach and marine environment so well maintained and litter-free.

 Ms Stuckey said she had organised for stickers promoting this announcement to be printed and encouraged anyone interested to drop by or call her office on (07) 5598 1387.

 A small ceremony will be held this Wednesday 20 November to congratulate and recognise all who contributed to this excellent achievement.
