Volunteering at NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service

Chase Alive Discovery Program Volunteer Position (Greater Sydney Area)





NPWS Discovery Volunteers undertake a variety of roles aimed at making a visit to a National Park more enjoyable by giving information and assistance, staffing the Kalkari Discovery Centre or leading guided walks within the parks. A minimum of eight hours each month is required, with a range of activities available. Volunteers are trained in the natural environment, history and heritage of our Parks. In August and September the Muogamarra Nature Reserve is open to the public and volunteers are expected to do 3 x eight-hour shifts during this season


The Barrenjoey Lighthouse in Palm Beach peninsula is an iconic Sydney sight. Open to the public on Sundays, Discovery Volunteers take guided tours of the lighthouse, explaining the history of the area, the building of the lighthouse and revealing some of the stories behind being a lighthouse keeper in the early days of settlement. Barrenjoey volunteers do a 6-hour shift approximately monthly.
