Come to Macquarie Harbour on Tasmania's rugged west coast, the home of the iconic Gordon River and an area with a rich and dramatic convict past.

The CVA team will be assisting the community to collect and sort marine debris from the beaches, rivers and rocks around Macquarie Harbour. This is a huge project and will operate in conjunction with local businesses, various volunteer groups, Parks Tasmania and local community organisations.  All of the debris will be sorted and documented in order to assess its origin which will in turn help with future debris management.

Enjoy being part of a team that is making a real difference to the wild west of Tasmania. We will be based at Strahan with accommodation and food provided. Transport to and from Launceston and Hobart will also be available but please get in touch for details.

April 6th and April 12th are predominantly travel days.

What to wear while volunteering:

  • Long pants and long sleeved shirt
  • Sturdy enclosed shoes
  • Broad brimmed hat and wet weather gear.

What is provided:

  • We have some cabin accommodation and free camping available.
  • Breakfast lunch and dinner
