Fairy Knowe Backpackers is a well-known establishment, situated alongside the Wilderness National Park. We are looking for volunteers who will be here for at least two months. Presently we have availability for September, October and November. In particular someone to tutor little Mimi. Also from December through Summer we will need an extra hand for front of house, bar, and adventures.
Working and living at Fairy Knowe is a unique experience. To get the best from the experience requires a combination of hard work, enthusiasm, honesty and being proactive about using your time off to enjoy the surrounding area.

We like our volunteer staff to represent a healthy gender balance, and we make sure that the people who come here feel welcome and part of the team.

There are various tasks that could suit your skills. The main ones are: working behind the bar, and working front of house. We don't make people do things that they really don't like doing, and we don't take people on who are not keen or able to do the primary tasks required to run the backpackers business. We presently have an additional need. We need a volunteer to tutor a 10 year old girl, who is the daughter of our housekeeping manager. She is doing an online homeschooling course.

Volunteers work five days a week, sometimes during the day, sometimes into the night, depending on the schedule. You will stay for free in a dorm and you will eat!

We are also an adventure centre. We offer all the activities and tours available in Wilderness like kayaking, canyoning, horse riding, paragliding, abseiling and more.

Get in touch if you'd like to start a conversation. Together we'll figure out if a volunteer stint will work for you and for us.
