Volunteering in Australia
Volunteer in Australia, the land of dramatic mountains, lush rainforest, endless deserts and bustling cities, and experience the magnificence and diversity of this island continent. Spend time snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, take in the charm of Sydney Harbour, visit the sacred, indigenous Uluru Rock and enjoy the breathtaking beaches, hiking trails and mountains.
Our volunteer projects are located in various locations throughout Australia; New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, Western Australia, South Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. Volunteers focus on environmental conservation projects which can be varied and dependent on time of year. In the past our volunteers have been a part of environmental monitoring, Heritage Restoration, tree planting, endangered species protection and habitat conservation. These projects are perfect for anyone with a passion in environmental conservation, and with hundreds of native plant and animal species in Australia, there is always something new to learn!
Australia is one of the most developed countries in the world, but is always one of the countries facing unprecedented environmental threats. With such a vast array of native vegetations and wildlife it is crucial that initiatives are taken to protect the future landscape. Despite the threat facing the environment, the country has invested a lot of time and funds to ensuring the ongoing sustainability and future of its reefs, national parks, forests and deserts.
Your evening and weekend time will be dependant on whether you are in a rural, coastal or urban location. However, we recommend adding time before or after your volunteering placement as there is a plethora of things you can get involved in. You can visit the Great Barrier Reef, a World Heritage Site, explore the hinterland by hiking through the Blue Mountains or catch a game of Australian Rules Football. Make sure to try the classic staple of Australian cuisine – fish and chips near the beach and try your hand at surfing the coastal waters!
Australia’s biggest cities, Sydney and Melbourne, are the highlight of any trip to Australia. They are the cultural hubs of the country and home to some of the best restaurants, shopping, theatres, music halls and showcase the diverse history. Both are situated along the coast, but have their own distinct uniqueness and beauty. You can take in the graffiti in Melbourne, or walk around the Opera House in Sydney – no matter what your interests are, Australia offers something special for everyone. You will certainly fall in love with its cities and its hinterlands.
