Naturewise Conservation Holidays
Conservation Volunteers offers Naturewise Conservation Holidays - meaningful, small group travel experiences in some of Australia's most beautiful nature areas.
Connect with nature and explore the great outdoors, while contributing to conservation. View wildlife, meet the locals, work alongside park rangers and walk through spectacular National Parks.
Each trip provides the rewarding opportunity for you to personally contribute to the conservation of these special places.
Conservation activities typically make up 30 - 50% of the trip, with remaining time spent touring the local surrounds including wildlife viewing, guided walks, tours and visiting National Parks. No experience is required to participate in a Naturewise program, though you should be reasonably fit and active. Prices include accommodation, meals, guide, transfers and all activities. Naturewise programs are award recognised and eco certified.
