Volunteer in Australia

It is no secret that Australia is one of the top destinations for worthwhile volunteer abroad experiences. On a single trip visitors to the riveting continent can find world famous landmarks like the Sydney Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef and an extensive desert known as the Outback. In terms of environment and wildlife, the continent really has it all. A diverse landscape with pristine beaches, tropical rainforests and rolling deserts, that all play home to a collection of native and world famous animals including Koalas and Kangaroos. On top of all the natural wonders it has on offer, Australia also boasts a host of bustling cosmopolitan cities, including the likes of Sydney and Melbourne, who together with its untamed wilderness and indigenous animals, combine to make Australia an exciting and important place to visit and volunteer.
For a host of different reasons, many of Australia’s eco -regions and the species that inhabit them, are severely threatened by human activities. These include deforestation, habitat destruction and pollution. Many volunteers who decide to visit this spectacular country choose to join projects that have a specific focus on environmental conservation, ranging from animal welfare, research, the survey and maintenance of flora and fauna to diving the incredible Great Barrier Reef. Whatever you choose, your positive contribution will be both appreciated and welcomed and you will return home with the knowledge that you have truly made a difference.
Apart from positively impacting the country you are visiting, its wildlife, terrain and communities, volunteering abroad will ultimately provide you with a host of additional perspectives and experiences. Taking the opportunity to travel to a foreign country in order to make a difference in a community or environment other than your own will afford you with a sense of freedom and at the same time a worldview greater than anything you could gain from staying in the comfort of your own home.
While Australia is often viewed as being on the other side of the world, and a challenge to travel to, the experience of visiting and volunteering in one of the most diverse and exciting countries in the world will undeniably be worth it.
