Keep Queensland Beautiful’s flagship program; Tidy Towns aims to recognise and reward hard work occuring in towns across Queensland.

Tidy Towns has been adjusted to an accreditation program to better reflect the comprehensive approach that has been a part of the Tidy Towns ethos for many years.

The accreditation rating will provide participating towns with 1 to 5 stars based on their performance in key focus areas:

  • Community Spirit
  • Litter Action
  • Resource Recovery
  • Waste Management
  • Environmental Innovation
  • Environmental Protection
  • Heritage and Culture
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Water Conservation

The change to an accreditation program will mean that all towns, not just ‘award’ winning towns will receive recognition for their efforts through promotion on an honour roll, in the new Our Queensland travel guide (including this website) and through roadside signage (for installation at each entry to your town).

The title (and award) of Queensland’s Tidiest Town will be decided by a panel of assessors and will be announced (annually) to coincide with the opening of the Local Government Association of Queensland’s annual conference (in October).
