  • About

Australia has a number of volunteer opportunities for individuals willing to help in the nation.

  • Program Types
    Environmental/Wildlife Conservation

    Australia is known for its beautiful landscapes. However, these landscapes are in fact quite fragile and they provide a habitat for endangered flora and fauna. As a volunteer, you would be working on a wildlife research sanctuary, an outdoor education project, or scientific research.

    Marine Conversation

    One of Australia's greatest tourist attractions is the Great Barrier Reef. The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system and is located in north east Australia, off the coast of Queensland. Unfortunately, there are many problems that have been affecting the native flora and fauna, and as a volunteer, you will be working to restore the habitat.

    Work with Children

    Australia has a number of refugees from various war torn countries like Somalia and Sudan. There are many Intensive English Centers in the nation where refugee students study. As a volunteer, you will be teaching these students and also coaching them in sports.

  • Planning Your Trip
    Know Before You Go

    Australia is a Western and English speaking country, so you may feel tempted to not prepare too much for your trip. You should however remember that Australia has a distinct culture and Australians certainly have a different style of speaking as compared to their counterparts in the US and UK. There are plenty of resources about life in Australia out there, like Rocky Travel so do a little research before you go!

    How to Save Money While Volunteering

    Australia is a western nation and thus isn't a particularly cheap country, so if you're on a tight budget, try not eating out too often and not shopping too much. Moreover, try to walk or use public transportation as much as possible instead of calling a taxi.

    Health and Safety of Volunteers in Australia

    As a volunteer in Australia, you're not required to be vaccinated for any diseases. However, you are recommended to be vaccinated for Influenza if you're traveling from May to October. Also, because of the prevalence of mosquito borne illnesses, you are recommended to carry insect repellants with you.

    Australia is a safe country and as a tourist and volunteer, there really isn't anything you should worry about.
