Everlasting Swamp National Park is a rare floodplain wetland in northern NSW. It’s home to brolgas, jabiru and other migratory birds. It’s also undergone significant transformations during the past century. This is your chance to share the story of this beautiful place, in partnership with NPWS.

How it works:

  • We'll give you access to raw film footage captured from drone and helicopter. We'll brief you with background information on the park’s natural values and management. We'll also make sure you have our brand guidelines for video production.
  • Drawing on these, you’ll create a promotional film to captivate the imagination of future visitors to the park.
  • You'll need to have demonstrable video editing skills (send us a link to a clip or short film you’ve edited).
  • You'll also have your own computer and video editing software (or access to these).

By volunteering your skills, you’ll help inform NSW national park management and planning for this reserve. Your video could also be featured on the NPWS website.
