Start your weekend with a beach clean and cafe combo

It goes without saying, the ocean and its surroundings are one of the world's most natural beauties. So why is it these stunning areas are so often overrun by rubbish? BeachCare is a community project run by Griffith University, which fights back against the war on litter. Gathering environmentally-minded individuals from across the coast on a regular basis, this beach loving society helps to clean up our gorgeous coastlines and keep them beautiful. From planting native dune plants and removing weeds, to scavenging the sand for plastic and waste, you name it, this community program does it. Join in on this fantastic cause and do your bit to help achieve a healthier coastline.

This Saturday, the sandy stretch of Runaway Bay will be greeted by friendly and passionate individuals keen to make a positive impact to our shores. This free, fun and family-friendly event is the perfect activity to take the kids along and educate them about the hard facts of beach litter. With the leadership of BeachCare as well as a number of community leaders attending the event, you will be sure to learn something you didn’t know before. Starting around 9am, be sure to make an appearance at this fantastic event. If you’re looking for somewhere to grab a quick coffee or brekky beforehand, swing by one of these local cafes.

Monsoon in Paradise Point is a firm favourite with both locals and visitors alike. Well-known for their exquisite meals which ooze with flavour and vibrancy, this location is the perfect spot for all three meals during the day – but we are here to talk about breakfast, so let’s get to it. Dive into the gourmet corn fritters which are rustled up with a healthy serving of avocado and a poached egg on top. If you’re in need of something hearty (and a pat on the back) after participating in the beach clean, don’t hold back – order yourself the Moonsoon. This bad boy brekky is the ultimate fry-up coming with all the usual trimmings including hash browns, bacon and tasty beans to satisfy your cravings.
