NSW National Parks is always looking for volunteers to join them to introduce international, interstate and NSW travellers to this precious part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area.

As a volunteer in this large temperate rainforest, you’ll have the chance to:

  • Lead guided tours on tracks such as Blue Gum loop
  • Share the park’s ancient history and ecology
  • Help promote the Dungog area
  • Inform visitors about the value of our national parks

All you need to begin is a moderate level of physical fitness, ease with public speaking and a personal interest in the natural environment. Training and ongoing support are provided by NSW National Parks staff and experienced volunteers. Contact us for more information.
