So you’re thinking of travelling all the way to Australia, the Great Southern Land to do some Volunteer work or WWOOFing?
Australia is a great place to consider spending some time doing volunteer work, or WWOOFing, as the variety is huge. You can spend your time on a fully fledged farm or homestead and work with plants and animals, or go for something more quaint, like a small plot tending the vegies.
WWOOFing and Volunteering in Australia enables you to travel very cheaply, while at the same time, getting to know the local culture from the inside, and connecting with the locals on real terms.
WWOOF Australia has some set guidelines for how often you work, where you stay and how much time off you have to yourself. Usually, an Australian Host Farm will ask around 4-6 hours per day for 5 days per week, in return for feeding you all your meals and providing you with suitable accommodation.
This is a perfect setup if you wish to do some volunteer work, learn new skills and at the same time, get to tour around the area checking out the local attractions.
Many Volunteer farms in Australia can be rather remote. However, in Australia, some of the most beautiful stunning scenery is found in the remote Outback areas. Rock formations, gullies, rainforests and waterfalls to name a few. So, if you’re thinking of Volunteering or WWOOFing in Australia, go visit the WWOOF Australia website and learn more.
