Ornamental English plants have their place, but not in the Australian bushland. Cold-climate ornamental garden escapees threaten the biodiversity of Wombeyan Caves – a Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. Help fight the spread of these weeds and maintain the caves’ natural ecosystem. Over just one or two weekends each year, your contribution will have a far-reaching effect on:

•    Preserving natural habitats of native Australian animals and birds
•    Reducing erosion
•    Maintaining water quality of Wollondilly River catchment

Due to the remote location of Wombeyan Caves, you’ll stay overnight in our self-contained accommodation. And, in the evening, we’ll provide a moonlight barbecue and cave tour or spotlight night walk. Tools and training are provided by Landcare and NSW National Parks staff, who’ll be working alongside volunteers. Please contact us for further information about this unique volunteering activity in Wombeyan Karst Conservation Area.
