Description

In this program, you will live in beautiful Calga, Australia, about 1.5 hours outside of Sydney by train. The project is based on an 80-acre wildlife sanctuary at the start of picturesque NSW Central Coast. Join an orientation that includes a tour of the bustling capital city of Sydney, with activities designed to help you start feeling like an authentic Aussie!

Volunteer responsibilities may include feeding the animals, maintaining the sanctuary grounds, and clearing paths and maintaining nature trails.
