The town was awarded the first-ever NSW Tidy Town Award in 1981 and the top award has again been bestowed to Gloucester, winning the NSW Overall award for 2015.

Since winning the inaugural prize in 1981, Gloucester has picked up more prizes in the Tidy Town Awards including category awards in 1983, 1984, 1996, 2006, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 6 awards for 2015 including the coveted Overall State Winner.
