Why not volunteer your time once a month and help us remove woody weeds like lantana and bitou bush in the shoreline rainforest of north Wyrrabalong National Park?

Keen gardeners will love this activity, but you don’t need to be an expert. You’ll be given training in the work you do, and all volunteers will learn a lot about the local environment. You’ll meet new people in your community while helping to protect the habitat for plants and wildlife in this national park. It’s a beautiful place to be, all year round.

Wear closed-in shoes, a long-sleeve top, a hat and sunscreen. Bring along a raincoat, snacks, lunch, drinking water and gardening gloves. All tools and a hard hat are supplied.

For directions, safety and practical information, see visitor info

Saving Our Species program

Australia is home to more than 500,000 animal and plant species, many of which are found nowhere else in the world. Saving our Species is a statewide conservation program that addresses the growing number of Australian animals and Australian native plants facing extinction.
