Destination Conservation Experience - Subtropical Rainforest, South East Queensland

333 Bennetts Road, Morningside, Queensland, 4170

Help protect and restore ancient Gondwanan Rainforest.

Springbrook is an ancient Gondwanan Rainforest 70 kilometres south of Brisbane in the Gold Coast Hinterland, covering 6, 25 hectares. Over thousands of years water and volcanic activity have carved a spectacular landscape of cliffs, gorges and waterfalls and much of this beautiful area is in pristine condition. Beneath the treetops a magical world of vines, endangered plants and wildlife, crystal clear streams, glow in the dark fungi and some of the oldest trees in the world beg to be explored.

We will be helping to protect and restore this critically endangered bioregion through tree planting, weed removal and wildlife monitoring, and volunteers will soak up the sights and sounds of the rainforest by sleeping in quaint ranger’s quarters on site throughout the program.

Experience Highlights

* Visit ancient Antarctic Beech trees and look for pademelons, land mullets and satin bowerbirds while exploring ancient Gondwanan Rainforest

Conservation Volunteers is a national, not-for-profit community based organisation that is dedicated to involving the community in practical conservation natural resource management programs. Conservation Volunteers welcomes people with a love of the outdoors and interest in the environment to take part as a volunteer.

The volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds, such as students, professionals, international visitors and retirees. You do not need any prior skills or experience. The residential programs are open to volunteers aged 18 to 70.

Conservation Volunteers has partnered with individuals, businesses and governments in the conservation of the unique environment since 1982. In that time they have welcomed hundreds of thousands of volunteers from around Australia and across the world and supported their participation in a diversity of important projects to protect and enhance their environment.

Conservation Volunteers believe in a healthy, sustainable environment and for everyone to be involved in managing and protecting that environment. They want to attract and manage volunteers to participate in projects that protect or enhance their environment and heritage.
