On Saturday 9 February, volunteers are invited to join our clean-up of the wild western coastline of Muriwai Beach.
Simply meet at the Muriwai Surf Club at the south end of Muriwai Beach at 10.30am, Saturday 9 February, to sign-in and collect clean-up equipment. From there we will split into teams and head out along the coast on foot and by 4WD vehicle.
Bring your own 4WD vehicle to allow us to clean-up the largest area possible and for a great opportunity to explore this epic west coast beach.
This wild stretch of coastline, although well looked after by locals, is affected by a regular flow of waste from beach-goers, fishing activity and the Tasman Sea, so let’s get together to clean it up.
In the afternoon following the clean-up our team, accompanied by our mobile classroom ‘Education Station’, will be spreading the good word at Music at Matua. Join us there for a fantastic summer festival, great music and to learn more about Sustainable Coastlines’ work.
To help with event planning we need to know how many people will bring their 4WD vehicle. Please register your vehicle here. The first 20 people to register to bring their 4WD will receive one free ticket to Music at Matua*.
Participants need to bring:
- Sturdy shoes: this area has some challenging coastal terrain with rocks that can be sharp, loose and slippery. You’ll need closed-toe, sturdy shoes (such as sneakers, sports shoes or tramping boots).
- Warm and waterproof clothes: NZ weather is unpredictable. Bring at least one warm top (ideally old woolen) and a rain jacket.
- Sun hat and sun cream.
- Reusable water bottle (filled-up and ready to go).
- Camera (optional) – this is a unique and beautiful location and we would love to see your photos after the event.
- Your own 4WD (optional) – this is a great opportunity to explore this area.

*Free ticket to Music at Matua will be issued upon return from clean-up activities.
