Parks and Wildlife Campground Host

Environment & Conservation Regular - more than 6 months Kensington WA

About this opportunity

Since its launch in 1991, hundreds of people have taken part in Parks and Wildlife's Campground Host Program and volunteered their time in national parks around WA.

These people have spent time in some of the state's most beautiful spots, met many fascinating people and formed memories that will last a lifetime.

The program is particularly popular among retirees. However, it is perfect for people who love camping and the great outdoors. In most cases as a volunteer, once training has been completed, you choose where you’d like to stay and for how long.

Hosting is available for most of the year.

The role is currently only available for Australian residents.
