I'm thinking about doing that for a short while next year before travelling. I want it to be with animals espec Koalas! Anyway does anyone know where to look to do this? Or has anyone done this before? What happens with acoomadation etc? I want to travel afterwards too so what happens there? Just a thought but i really want to do it!

Do a google search on Koala sanctuaries in Australia, or something along those lines, and just email as many as you can find time to saying what your looking for. If you want to swap Koalas for dolphins there is a volunteer program at Monkey Mia, Shark Bay WA. You can volunteer for a minimum of 4 days to a max. of 2 weeks and you help to feed the dolphins and look after the CALM (ranger) office. You have to pay for your own accommodation though Bugger. There is a campsite but it depends on how you're travelling!

Good Luck Though,


P.S. Aussie wildlife loves Scottish people!
