    **LOOKING FOR A CARE-TAKING COUPLE TO STAY FOR 4-8 WEEKS FROM DECEMBER TO EXPERIENCE THE WET SEASON IN THR AMAZING KIMBERLEY**

    The purpose is to provide opportunity People and other Aboriginal People living in the Dampier Peninsula to promote their culture through tourism.

    We provide the venue and staffing to support the initiatives.

    It's best described as a unique off-the-grid wilderness camp located on Native Title land sustained by solar power and local bore water. Our low-impact accommodation has been specifically designed to capture the rugged character and beauty of Bardi Jawi country, and reflects the Aboriginal values of caring for land and country. Surrounded by a diversity of natural wonders, the amazing wildlife, vast array of marine life and the stunning coastline makes this a truly unique place to experience.

    The two surrounding Aboriginal Communities of Djarindjin and Ardyaloon (One Arm Point) jointly own, making it proudly 100% Indigenous Owned. The Communities have developed the camp in line with the community’s aspirations and their inherent knowledge of the land.

    It has been established for 20 years and has won numerous state and national tourism awards in categories for Indigenous Tourism, Eco Tourism, Unique Accommodation and Cultural Tourism.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The view for the future is for the complex to be wholly Aboriginal run and provide employment opportunities for community members. Currently the complex is managed by non-Aboriginal staff, under the guidance of a board of directors.

    Travellers will benefit from working under the guidance of an Aboriginal board of directors, from having opportunities to explore country with local guides, and being able to live in this unique and remote place.

    Help

    We seek long and short term volunteers to help with the development vision.

    Much of the volunteer work at the moment is for general help. There is a specific need for volunteers to do general caretaker work during the wet season (October-March).

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Accommodation will be shared in a small dormitory style or couples can request own room. Accommodation is not glamorous! Volunteer House includes shared kitchen, BBQ, shared bathroom and toliets, television, and there is AC in each room. Volunteers are to be mindful of water and power usage as we are an eco camp.

    Volunteers will have a weekly food budget of $100 to be used at coles online. We are a very remote camp with only one weekly grocery delivery.

    Workawayers can bring own tent or campervans if more privacy is required.

    Accommodation options vary based on time of year.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Weather can be quite hot, no alcohol permitted on peninsula, remote location, close living and working environment with others. Beautiful beaches to explore on time off, fishing in abundance, community involvement encouraged. Transportation limited. Having own vehicle would allow more access to communities, however lots of volunteers come to stay without a vehicle. Arrangements can be made to get volunteers from Broome via tour bus or other means, a slight cost may be involved depending on the means.
