  • Description


    Our Sanctuary is located in the beautiful beachside town of Agnes Water in sunny Queensland Australia. We are dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of orphaned joeys. We also have a menagerie of other animals so being an animal lover is a must. We live about 10 minutes from town and beaches on 10 acres with stunning ocean/bay views. We provide seperate accomodation and a food allowance. We would prefer a couple, a couple of friends or will consider a single if the right person

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Being compassionate people we are dedicated and commited to leaving as little impact on our planet as possible. Having a light footprint is something we should all strive for. Learning how to care for Australian native animals would have to be one of the most interesting things you could do.

    WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS who are self motivated, have a good level of English and have a level of common sense that can help in day to day life.

    I had an accident about 15 years ago and have a debilitating back problem so I require help in the house doing general house duties. There are many jobs associated with keeping the environment clean and safe for our joeys. Jobs are many and varied and can change from day to day. Some days it may be gardening, some days painting, some days doing housework, some days going to the beach.

    Please only apply if you have a genuine love of animals, are able to take instructions and follow rules (animals are creatures of habit and kangaroos especially are very skittish animals and we try to maintain a quiet, peaceful place for them). You also should have a can do attitude so if you see something that needs to be done, it gets done.

    I guarantee for your work you will experience one of the most unique opportunities living with these adorable animals, not to mention all of the other animals like Charlie Bird the corella who gets let out of his cage every afternoon for a fly around and some fun. And the list goes on.

    What else ...

    We are 10 minutes from town and beaches. Agnes Water boasts the best most northerly surf beach on the east coast, the sand is pristine as are the waters. Lots of national parks around for the energetic who like hiking. Of course the water and beach, the foreshore at 1770 are all beautiful places to chill out and relax, or you can find a shady/sunny spot on our property, take a book and your camera and watch all the wild kangaroos and wallabies hanging out on our place
