Known for
Rock for the Reef is presented by three environmental organisations, and all funds raised will go towards the campaigns they are running to help protect the Great Barrier Reef. Green Music Australia is helping the Australian music scene become a practical leader in sustainability - cutting energy use and waste streams, using renewable energy, and showing our audiences how we can all go green while still having fun; the Australian Marine Conservation Society is the voice for Australia's ocean wildlife; and the Australian Youth Climate Coalition is building a generation-wide movement to solve the climate crisis. We run campaigns that inspire our generation to take action.
