Sanctuary Cove marina on Australia’s Gold Coast has attained Clean Marina Level 3 status for its commitment to “rigorous environmental management systems”.

Overseen by the Marina Industries Association of Australia (MIAA), the Clean Marinas programme encourages environmental compliance and the use of best management practices for marinas.

Level 3 accreditation signifies that the marina has been independently audited by a trained and qualified Clean Marina consultant to 124 environmental assessment criteria in areas such as fuelling, waste storage and disposal, emergency planning and management of environmental practices.

The Marina Sanctuary Cove has more than 300 moorings for boats from 8m-46m (25ft-150ft), and has hosted the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show for 23 years.
