You are invited to join Sustainable Coastlines for the Love your Coast Rangitoto Island Clean-up: our massive coastal clean-up on Auckland’s iconic and unique volcanic island. We are very pleased to announce that we have space for 350 volunteers on chartered ferries leaving from Queen’s Wharf. Confirm your space through the links above or by visiting www.sustainablecoastlines.org.

Volunteers will be alongside 1,000 dedicated school students, teachers and parents on the island, but we have a strict capacity so get in quick to make sure you secure your spot.

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, ferries to Rangitoto Island are free for all participants. We do, however, ask that you bring a gold coin donation on the day to help us cover other event costs.

All registered volunteers will need to arrive at Shed 10, Queen’s Wharf, Auckland CBD at 7.45am on Tuesday 6 December. There, you will sign-in and get ready to board ferries to Rangitoto Island. Ferries will return from Rangitoto Island to this point at around 4.15pm, so be ready for a solid day out on the island. We will also have music and visual displays in Shed 10 after the event.

Important notes / what to bring:

This clean-up will be a great adventure, but it is important that all event participants are well prepared so as to make the most of the day.

Volunteers must be physically fit and willing to spend several hours walking on challenging, rocky terrain, sometimes while carrying sacks of rubbish.

Wear sturdy shoes: Rangitoto Island’s rocks are sharp, loose and can be slippery. You’ll need closed-toe, sturdy shoes (such as sneakers, sports shoes or tramping boots). Sorry, but if you turn up in jandals you will not be let on the boat!

Pack warm and waterproof clothes: Weather can be unpredictable at this time of year. Bring at least one warm top (ideally old woolen) and a rain jacket in a backpack you can carry with you.

Carry sunscreen and a hat: There is very little shelter on the island.

Bring plenty of food and water: There are no shops on Rangitoto Island and very limited access to drinking water. Clean-up can be physically challenging so come prepared!

Bring your camera: Capture memories of a fantastic day and enter your best shots in our photo competition.

We provide all clean-up equipment, including rubbish sacks, gloves and other safety gear.
