Want to work outside? Volunteers work on beaches, parks, showgrounds, natural areas and waterways. Our volunteers are important in helping to maintain our wonderful environment to a high standard. We rely on our volunteer workforce, as without them we couldn't maintain the standards we want to achieve. This type of work is varied, sociable and helps keep you fit. Most groups meet weekly for a couple of hours. Council supplies the equipment. Volunteers supply the muscle power.
In the Great Lakes, there is currently over 50 active volunteer groups consisting of mowing and maintenance groups, land care and dune care groups, and waterways maintenance groups.

If you are keen to start a new group, or even work solo, we want to hear from you too. You will need to be registered and undertake a short safety induction. The first step is to fill in the Volunteering Registration Form. We can't wait to meet with you.
