You are here



If you have some spare time on your hands during the summer holidays, one option might be to join the more than 6 million other Australians who volunteer and donate your time. Greening Australia, Volunteering Australia, Clean Up Australia and Conservation Volunteers are just a few of the non-profit organisations who welcome help from community members. You can help at tree planting events, clean up our bushland and waterways or spend time at community nurseries.

You can even take your holiday with some volunteer organisations — getting a unique holiday experience and making a real difference to the environment at the same time. For example, Conservation Volunteers offer small group eco-tour experiences where the holiday maker actually gets to participate in conservation activities while on holiday and discover areas often not accessible to other tourists.
