Volunteer for NSW national parks

Campground Host Program

This program is a great opportunity to experience camping in our national parks while providing a valuable service to the public. If you have a passion for the outdoors and volunteering, becoming a campground host might be for you. Find out more on the NPWS visitor website.

Nature Nomads Program

For a holiday with a difference, join together with other nomads and combine your travels with an enriching volunteer experience. Set up your caravan or pitch your tent at Arakoon National Park, Yuraygir National Park or Bundjalung National Park for a week and enjoy hands-on involvement in protecting our national parks. Applications for the Nature Nomads program are now open for Autumn 2014.

Exciting volunteer opportunities are available in many of NSW's stunning national parks, nature reserves and state conservation areas.

Our parks and wildlife benefit hugely from the generous time and dedication of over 6500 volunteers each year. Volunteers, in return, benefit from an unforgettable experience in some of Australia's finest nature locations.

NSW national park volunteering programs give you an amazing opportunity to help protect our natural environment and fascinating wildlife.

Volunteer positions allow you to:

  • acquire new skills and learn about life in the bush from park rangers
  • work on various projects such as archaeological excavations, bush regeneration and revegetation
  • help care for some of Australia's native plant and wildlife species
  • make like-minded friends
  • most of all, have a great time.

The programs offer a range of environmental activities to inspire your team and contribute to the conservation of our natural and historic heritage.
