It is organised and run by a different club each year. The 2019 event is the 39th annual Corroboree and is proudly hosted by The The Queensland 4×4 Club in association with 4WD Qld.
4wd Qld Fraser Island Cleanup
This is an annual event organised by 4WD Qld to clean up Fraser Island. In previous years, the event has attracted around 400 volunteers, spanning 230+ vehicle and 20+ 4WD drive clubs across the state, who volunteered their time to clean up rubbish and debris that had either been washed onshore or carelessly left behind by visitors to the island.
The idea to hold such a large scale clean up, on arguably Australia’s most iconic tourist island, was conceived by two mates sitting around a camp fire sharing their 4wding experiences and love of the outdoors. One of the people present that was night was Jeff Chase. Since then Jeff and his wife Nola have become the driving force behind this annual event in collaboration 4WD Qld and the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services.
4WD Qld first ran the event in 2001, and it has been held every year since. It has grown to be a total family event, teaching the children about the environment and how to enjoy without destroying it.
In 2007 the event won an EPA Award for the collaboration & partnership with QPWS.
Over the years the event has diversified from just the collection of rubbish along the beach to now include weed control activities and Natural Heritage & Dingo Alertness education by QPWS Rangers.
Participating club members are lucky enough to receive discounted barge and camping fees for the event, in exchange for some time cleaning up this wonderful part of Australia.

The Rum City Offroaders were asked to update the map of the park in 2014. Although it doesn’t look much different to the old map, it is much more accurate.
