Get to know all of Australia’s notes and crannies and make an active contribution to nature conservation in the country! If you decide to take part in this volunteer programme you can put together a tailored tour for yourself from a selection of several different locations. Travel to Down Under and dedicate yourself to protecting the country’s unique natural landscape!
Endless beaches, tropical rainforests and the barren outback – Australia’s variety of landscapes is breathtaking. As a volunteer in this project you actively contribute to restoring, protecting and preserving this magnificent environment. Depending on the length of your stay you participate in various exciting nature conservation projects. As part of a volunteer team of up to 10 members, you will gain unique experiences and simultaneously get to know breathtaking regions which are far from the typical tourist paths. Under the guidance of a professional team leader you are involved in tasks like planting trees, setting up fences and paths, doing statistical surveys of animal populations and plants, collecting plant seeds and supervising the project areas.
Working hours are usually from 8 AM to 4 PM for five days a week. These hours can vary, though, depending on the project. This means that weekends are usually off. Sometimes projects last for 10 days, followed by several off-days. Project locations can be changed every week or two so get the chance to explore different parts of Australia.
If you would like to be actively involved in nature conservation, enjoy activities in the great outdoors and want to get to know Australia from a special perspective, this project is just right for you!
The type of accommodation is dependent on the location: options are a guest house, a caravan, a hostel, a bungalow or a tent. Usually you will share your bedroom and bathroom with other team members. You will be provided with three meals per day – you and your team are responsible for preparing meals and keeping your accommodation clean.
“On Friday we then planted 1500 new plants. Tasks like these are so rewarding: at the end of the day you can see the results of your hard work.” (Amelie, 18 years)
