Volunteer Opportunities at Billabong Sanctuary
Volunteers are an integral part of the team at Billabong Sanctuary and we welcome volunteers from all walks of life.
Open 7 Days from 9am to 4pm
Volunteer opportunities are available in a range of areas, from assisting our Rangers with their day-to-day work, to keeping our grounds in good shape and providing educational opportunities and resources.
Volunteers are accepted for either a set period of time on placement (students completing university or TAFE course requirements; and participants in programmes such as Fronteering), or for an ongoing commitment of their time (such as local retirees) with the chance to develop advanced and specialist skills.
