Good news for backpackers who can’t find work but are paying rent and for food, we can provide free accommodation and meals.
Bonus if you are on a Working Holiday Visa (subclass 417) or Work & Holiday Visa (subclass 462), you can come and volunteer with BlazeAid in a bushfire affected area, such as Bombala, which will count as ‘specified work’ towards eligibility for a second or third year WHM visa.
Bombala is located about 2 ½ from Canberra. We are located at the Bombala Show Grounds were we have ample space for camper vans, tents and swags we also have a large dorm style room.
We will provide three meals per day; we will transport you out to local farms to work on re-fencing and property clearing, all training provided.
We are looking for a group of 20-30 people, for a minimum period of 2-3 weeks, so a fantastic way of making new friends and becoming absorbed in a local community.
