New South Wales has over 600 Parks and Reserves, as well as beaches, historic towns and outback areas. Conservation Volunteers programs start from Sydney, but projects generally take place away from the city and volunteers may be transferred on arrival to Conservation Volunteers’ Regional office in Newcastle.
Examples of projects in New South Wales include:
- Nobbys Beach is an icon of Newcastle and much loved – it’s a great location to spot dolphins frolicking in the waves. Our teams are helping to remove introduced weeds (Bitou Bush) and re-plant natives to enhance habitat.
- The Blue Mountains National Park is a World Heritage Area, and volunteers help on a number of walking track and trail projects
