Tidy Towns is the flagship program of Keep Queensland Beautiful. This well-known program aims to recognise and reward work occuring in towns across Queensland.

The Queensland Tidy Towns Accreditation program better reflects the comprehensive approach that has been a part of the Tidy Towns ethos for many years.

Accreditation provides participating towns with a 1 to 5 star rating, based on progress in key focus areas; Environmental Innovation and Protection, Heritage and Culture, Community Spirit, Litter Action, Resource Recovery, Waste Management, Water Conservation and Energy Efficiency.

The change to accreditation allows every participating town, not just award winning towns, to be recognised for their efforts through promotion in marketing campaigns, the Tidy Towns honour roll, Our Queensland travel guide and through the provision of signage and this website directory.

Tidy Towns accreditation provides formal recognition of the hard work that communities are already carrying out to foster long-term environmental and social health.
