Keep Australia Beautiful Victoria
Celebrating and encouraging the sustainable actions undertaken by Victorian communities every day is the essence of the Keep Australia Beautiful Victoria (KABV) program.
Founded 45 years ago by Dame Phyllis Frost and now part of Sustainability Victoria, KABV continues to support activities throughout the state that conserve, protect and enhance the local environment.
Through the KABV Awards and volunteer programs we recognise and reward councils, community groups, schools and individuals as they make their communities more cohesive, liveable and resilient.

The Water Conservation Award recognises outstanding achievement in water saving programs and initiatives, including educational programs, water conservation schemes and public awareness initiatives.
National Tidy Towns judge Dick Olesinski said that with 13 years of drought under their belt, the community of Wycheproof is informed and active in water conservation both in their homes and within their clubs and groups.
