Due to the current situation in Victoria, KAB has regrettably come to the decision to postpone the awards event in Beechworth scheduled for 4 – 6 June 2021.

New dates will be confirmed in early June.


Keep Australia Beautiful has been running the Australian Sustainable Communities Tidy Towns Awards for almost fifty years as a means of encouraging, motivating and celebrating the sustainability achievements of rural and regional communities across Australia.

In addition to recognising these achievements, the awards event offers representatives from across the country an opportunity to network and exchange ideas with others from community, industry and government sectors.

Each year the awards dinner and associated activities are hosted by the previous year’s winner. The town of Beechworth in Victoria was named the 2020 Australian Tidy Town winner and as such, will be our hosts for this three-day event.


Thank you to the following organisations for their generous support of the event:
