Volunteer in Australia with Volunteering Solutions that offers a meaningful Conservation Volunteering Program across different cities in the continent and well as an epic Great Ocean Road Volunteering Experience. Gap year travelers and backpackers who are looking for enriching international work experience can travel to the Southern Continent and be a part of this project, to spend some time amidst nature and effectively contribute towards Nature's wellbeing.
Both the Volunteering Programs in Australia are perfectly designed to provide the participants with an ethical, fun-filled and thrilling experience where they can work for the ecosystem and help to create a better environment. While you will have to work a lot, you’ll get to make some amazing friends, party with them, hit the beaches, wonder at some UNESCO World Heritage Sites and explore Australia in the most beautiful manner!
Your weekend scenes will depend entirely on which city you choose to volunteer. Well, it's needless to say that Australia is one of the most gorgeous continents in the world, and it's just not feasible to cover it all in one go. Rather, it'll be much better if you can properly chalk out the things to do nearby. If you are in Sydney, then, of course, you'll be hitting the beaches.
The Sydney Opera House – If you are volunteering in Sydney, you must visit one of the world’s most recognizable landmarks, The Sydney Opera House and experience it real up-close. Don’t miss out on running your hands over its world-famous shell tiles and remember how they felt. Sit in the most elegant white birch timber chairs inside to gaze at the vaulted ceilings. Here you can capture photographs from the rarest vantage points.
Palm Beach – Soak up the sun in the world famous Palm Beach as you play in its shining golden sands, capture coastal views and experience some world-class surfing. You can reach here easily if you are already volunteering in Sydney. There are other activities here that you can participate in too like boating in the turquoise waters, hiking in the sands near Barrenjoey Lighthouse or even playing golf. For your worked up appetite, there are so places you can indulge in the best and freshest seafood.
Royal National Park – It is accessible from Sydney and is the second largest National Park in the world, that combines beautiful beaches and cliff-fringe forests with deep valleys and rivers. You can even visit the heathland to hire a canoe and then head up to the Hacking River, or maybe stick to the coast and hike the cliff network. This park has everything from whale-watching and bushwalking to snorkeling, surfing, and fishing.
The Great Barrier Reef – If you are volunteering in Cairns then experience the Great Barrier Reef’s spectacular scenery. You can take a cruise here to enjoy comfortable accommodation and chef-prepared meals explore this Reef by snorkeling or diving!
Blue Mountains National Park – This is a truly surreal destination to visit for those volunteering in Sydney! The Blue Mountains National Park is named as such because of the blue haze over the mountains that comes from thousands of eucalyptus plants that releasing oils into the air. This area has an unspoiled wilderness with aboriginal rock paintings, gorges and hiking trails.
