Our clean started early as we had volunteers from Hungry Jacks working with us for 2 hrs today.  We also had 2 kayaks & a small boat to retrieve many items that our land based volunteers could not reach.  Working together we removed  245 plastic bottles,113 glass bottles & 161 cans plus 120 kgs of other litter including 1 shopping trolley, 18 balls, lots of polystyrene & 8 bags general rubbish.  Our member for Lalor Joanne Ryan MP also attended the clean which was great.  We really appreciate her support & the efforts of everyone involved with today's clean. After the clean we all enjoyed another great BBQ provided by the Australian Indian Foundation Incorporated.
