Our Volunteers

We currently have over 1200 volunteers who come from all walks of life and we are always keen to welcome volunteers who want to give people in remote Australia a helping hand.

Every little bit of help is important and our volunteers offer many types of support. Our volunteers help with the day-to-day work on remote properties around Australia when families need an extra pair of hands. Volunteer jobs can include helping around the house, gardening, cooking, school tutoring, fencing, plumbing, gardening, feeding the animals, and other odd jobs around the house and farm. Volunteers can also help the farmer with general maintenance, fixing tractors, small plumbing jobs, repairing fences, stock work or even business admin or book keeping. As well as practical help, volunteers provide a ‘listening ear’ for farmers who are often isolated. and make a connection with remote Australia that they didn’t have before.

In addition to making a huge positive difference in the lives of farmers around Australia, volunteers get to see parts of Australia far beyond the CBD and have a unique experience of life in remote Australia.

Your help is really needed and is greatly appreciated!
