A Western Australian tourist received a nasty surprise during his visit to the Eurobodalla this week.
Michael Bradley, from Karratha, said he was shocked to witness litter scattered along the water at North Head, Moruya, while fishing.
“It’s shocking to go down and see people, basic bogans, turn up on the river for a quick fish and a drink and not do anything,” Mr Bradley said.
“They push their rubbish down into the rocks so you can’t see it.
“People just don’t care.”
Mr Bradley believed the lack of bins in the area contributed to the problem.
“It’s just not nice for visitors,” he said.
“There was a lot of junk in the area.
“The rubbish is killing the wildlife in and around the river system.”
Mr Bradley, who was visiting the area for a holiday with his daughter, said he also witnessed a group of visitors removing live hermit crabs, by the bagful, from Batemans Bay.
He said such disregard for the environment was a rarity in Karratha and urged people to dob in litter bugs.
