This wildlife park is located just north of Newcastle, in Port Stephens. The accommodations are in Newcastle, which is Australia’s second oldest city. Newcastle is a lively and cultural residential area and a three-hour train ride to downtown Sydney.
Volunteers will work at a family owned and operated park, that strives to provide a fun, safe and educational experience for the public, while promoting a variety of animal conservation and preservation campaigns. This is an active park that participates in catch-and-release and research projects, as well as fundraising activities. By participating in this project, you will contribute to a wildlife park that provides a safe haven for endangered animals as well as a variety of farm animals.
Some of your tasks may include:
Internet: Free WiFi is available at the volunteer house.
Laundry: Laundry facilities are available at the volunteer house
Accommodations: Volunteers will stay in shared, same-gender, dormitory-style rooms in a volunteer house in the outskirts of Newcastle. There are four to six volunteers per shared room. There is a large kitchen and a smaller kitchen, as well as a living room and large backyard. The volunteer house is a 15-minute walk from the train station, and a nearly three-hour train ride to downtown Sydney.
Food: Food will be provided for volunteers to prepare their own breakfast and dinner. A packed lunch will be provided on weekdays. During weekends, all meals are self-served from the pantry and fridge stocks.
