This is a great chance to experience life in the real Australian bush with a group of other young people from all over the world, in a safe, healthy, fun environment.

We are located in a spectacular setting (see photos) surrounded by thousands of acres of National Park and have lots of native animals on site.

Attunga has been established for almost 30 years. Each year we host camps for schools, scouts, youth, church and community groups. We are a non-profit Christian Camp & Conference Centre located just 2 hours south of Sydney on 300 spectacular acres in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW.

Several thousand guests stay here each year in guest groups, and we often have volunteers staying with us who remain great friends for life.

See our first website link above for pics of our previous volunteer projects.

We are seeking a small number of volunteers to work here in exchange for amazing food, accommodation & use of our great guest facilities.

The work is varied depending on our needs when you're here and your skills and experience. Examples are outdoor projects, site preparation, painting, clearing bushwalking tracks, tree planting helping with building and maintenance projects. You can sometimes help with cooking lots of great food, gardening, maintaining horse riding equipment, cleaning, etc.

Typically you would be working an average of 25 hours per week, with exact hours varying day by day. In the summer we usually start early so you finish early and can spend the afternoon enjoying the beautiful property, facilities and surrounding national parks.

Our volunteers have an awesome time, with lots of really great food and use of our guest facilities such as horse riding, hot tub, pool, basketball, volleyball, scenic lookouts, bonfires, etc.

You'll live in a big country farmhouse in a safe, healthy environment with a pool, unlimited internet and use of our site facilities such as heated spa/hot tub, horse riding, etc when available. Drugs and alcohol are not permitted on site.

These are volunteer positions so there is no wage but also no cost for the use of all our great facilities, awesome food, accommodation, etc. It's a great opportunity and a truly worthwhile experience....just ask any past volunteer!

If you'd like to apply, please reply telling us a little about yourself.

VERY IMPORTANT: If you apply please also add our director Chris on Facebook (see link above) so we can add you to the group of applicants, and let you know about dates and details on through Facebook. We manage this whole application process online through Facebook.
