Ever considered volunteering to be a local tour guide? Rainforest Discovery guides at Sea Acres National Park personally introduce visitors to a rare subtropical coastal rainforest near Port Macquarie by guiding tours along Sea Acres Rainforest boardwalk. Explain rainforest ecology, identify birdcalls and answer the questions of your enthralled local, interstate and international visitors. Or become a Wilderquest Education volunteer. You'll present fun nature-based child-centred activities that meet NSW curriculum outcomes for 5 – 12 year olds.

New volunteers get plenty of training. You'll also buddy with an experienced guide before providing tours independently. Recruitment drives for guides are held every 2 years, but casual vacancies can crop up at any time. Wear neat casual trousers or shorts when you volunteer. Your shirt, name badge, first aid field kit, 2-way radio and insect repellant are all provided. Contact us if you want to be part of this rewarding volunteering activity.
