Bouddi National Park
Bouddi National Park’s natural coastline is under threat from invasive weeds. If you’re interested in helping to restore the native vegetation along this section of NSW coast, then volunteer to join a local bushcare group. Work is carried out in various sections of the park, including MacMasters Beach.

Without proactive bushcare, the natural habitat of native Australian animals and birds along Bouddi National Park’s coastline will eventually be destroyed. If you’d like to help tackle invasive weeds, then volunteer to join one of the bush regeneration groups that work across the park in locations such as:
- MacMasters Beach
- Lobster Beach
- Wagstaffe/Half Tide Rocks
- Maitland Bay
One group, for example, are the Bitou Bashers. They've successfully carried out weed removal along Maitland Bay's beachfront since 1980.
All volunteers are trained in weed identification and removal techniques including:
- Cut and paint with poison
- Scrape and paint with poison
- Pull out by hand
- Bag seed heads
If you're of moderate fitness, happy to get your hands dirty, and would like to work alongside friendly, like-minded locals, then join us for this rewarding volunteer work.
