Arrival in Australia
All participants need to arrive at the meeting point address provided to them on the program start date i.e Friday at 11am. Full address and instructions shall be provided to the participants beforehand.
The type of accommodation provided to the volunteers varies according to the project and location.Since there are various locations to choose from, volunteers would be either put in a hostel-style shared accommodation, or a caravan or camping set up. All the accommodations would be clean, comfortable and will have same gender sharing set up.All volunteers are required to bring a sleeping bag with them.
As soon as you arrive at the location of your choice, you have to report to your assigned project site, where you would be met by your project coordinator. He/she would give you a detailed orientation. Areas like safety, locations, transportation, things to see etc will be covered in the Orientation. After your orientation is over, you will be introduced to your project. Depending on the arrival date, you may have the weekend to explore the place and you are free to do so.
The meals provided reflect the local diet within Australia. For breakfast volunteers are generally supplied cereals, bread or toast, tea and coffee. Lunch is normally a self-made sandwich and fruit; in the evening volunteers enjoy a meal prepared by the group, typically something like pasta, roast or a vegetarian option. Volunteers help with the preparation of meals and cleaning up of dishes, plus some domestic duties as required. We rely on every volunteer to participate fully in the program, and the evening meal is a popular part of the day.We can cater for vegetarians but if volunteers have very specific dietary requirements (for example, food allergies), they may need to provide their own food. Please advise any special dietary requirements at the time of booking.
During your Free Time
You will have free time on the weekends and there is plenty of things to do and many places can be visited over the weekends. Participants can travel to main city locations on the weekends depending on the free time allocated by their project leader. For those participants in Queensland, you can head out to Gold Coast to explore the beautiful beaches and those in South Eastern Australia, can head out to Melbourne or Sydney on the weekend.
