If there is one destination that makes it to the list of ‘Top destinations to…’ of almost all travel analysts, it is most certainly Australia. While there can be different reasons for visiting Australia, one thing is common, and that is undoubtedly a place worth experiencing. And what better way can there be to experience a country other than involving in volunteering work.

Not only does it brings you closer to the people of the country, but to the lifestyle, traditions, and lot of other aspects which you may not get to explore as a general tourist. However, what we are discussing here today is a list of five important things you must do while on your volunteer trip to Australia. Take a look and keep noting down:

Australia is covered significantly with lush green rainforests and nature reserves. One can enjoy such pristine biodiversity, cuddled up with amazing flora and fauna, mountains, and waterfalls through forest exploration, trekking, hiking, or just simply admiring the beauty. What helps dearly is the fact that Volunteering Solutions provide Conservation volunteer program in different parts of the country, such that volunteers get to spend a good amount of time within the forest parts.

If you get an opportunity to travel across the Western part of Australia, it is recommended to take a ride on highway number one and turn your wheels to the Eyre highway. Reason? On the stretch from Balladonia to Caiguna, you will be driving on the longest straight road in the country; and one of the longest in the world. Popular as the ’90 mile straight’, this stretch of 146 km has no turns or deviations. Take the top gear!


4. Visit the twelve apostles

It is one thing to visit beaches for its palm fringed coastline, sports activities, sunbathing, and more. But when you visit the Port Campbell national park, by the Great Ocean Road, you witness a coastline which reflects a loud yet composed beach view. A series of twelve limestone stacks lined up equidistantly is the take away scenario of the region, and is popularly known as the “12 Apostles”.


5. Snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef
