As a volunteer tour guide, you’ll bring history to life and help us share the fascinating story of Copeland Tops State Conservation Area. You’ll lead and support guided tours, including:

This is an ideal opportunity if you're enthusiastic about face-to-face contact and guiding visitors of all ages. You'll also need to be free to volunteer at least once a month.

We’ll give you full training so you can lead guided tours with confidence. You’ll learn about local history and the park environment. You'll also gain valuable experience and new skills, especially in public speaking. Being a volunteer guide is a great way to make new friends and improve your fitness in a beautiful area.

You can look forward to guiding visitors through an area that is home to koalas, lyrebirds, glow worms and other wildlife. Our volunteer guide program has been running for over 10 years, and now is a perfect time to join us. Help us raise awareness of the gorgeous natural environment at Copeland Tops.

It’s a good idea to wear sturdy shoes, suitable clothes, a hat and sunscreen when you volunteer. Bring drinking water, snacks, lunch, insect repellent and a raincoat.
