Hi Everyone reading my review! My name is Maxime and I am from the Southern Part of Germany. For my first trip abroad without my parents I choose to volunteer for 6 weeks at the Koala program by Fronteering in Australia followed by several weeks of Backpacking before I was to start university in Germany.
Fronteering did a great job of helping me be comfortable and making all the arrangements. This helped me feel better about the trip and gave me the courage to travel just by myself. I stayed with a nice homestay family in the great Brisbane area not too far from the Sanctuary.
I had a very nice time and I loved working with the koala's and other volunteers. I was concerned that I would not have any friends but I made many friends quickly which was so fun as we got to do lots of fun things together and I made a friend so we could travel together after finishing my program.
I loved the program and I am exciting to go back to Australia!
