Residents of Hastings should be feeling proud of their town after it took out top honours last month in this year’s Keep Australia Beautiful Australian Sustainable Communities – Tidy Towns Awards, and now bears the title of Australia’s most sustainable community.

The awards began in 1968 in Western Australia and have been running nationally since 1990. The focus of the awards has evolved to recognise initiatives and projects that promote environmental sustainability and wise resource management.

Volunteers are the driving force of most of the initiatives and are to be credited for their commitment and motivation to create community cohesion and environmental sustainability.

“I’m thrilled Hastings has been recognised for the strength of its community and its volunteer spirit,” Mornington Peninsula Shire councillor Lisa Dixon said. “I can’t help but feel a warm glow of pride that the beauty and amenity of our town and its strong community spirit have been recognised on the national stage.”

Not only did Hastings receive the top award but it also won four of the nine individual categories: Dame Phyllis Frost Litter Prevention award, Heritage and Culture award (joint winner), Young Legends award (individual winner), and Community Health, Wellbeing and Interest award (joint winner). Some of the projects and initiatives recognised in these categories included the I Sea I Care Marine Ambassador Program, the Rap4Rap project promoting reconciliation, and the Mallacoota evacuation that saw local agencies assist up to 4000 people who were evacuated from Mallacoota beach during the Black Summer bushfires.
