Volunteer Work

Offset your travel footprint and do some volunteer work in Australia

Coodlie Park Farm Retreat is located on South Australia’s beautiful and wild Eyre Peninsula, 80 kilometres from Streaky Bay, 50 kms from Elliston and 700 kilometres west of Adelaide. Our property is a 3000-acre rural property with 2000 acres of cropping and grazing grounds and 1000 acres of native and coastal vegetation.



Offset your own travel footprint

Environmental sustainability is deeply engrained into our culture and we are certified members of Willing Workers on Organic Farms. We love to welcome international and domestic travellers who share a passion for responsible travel to our property as volunteers. We give them the opportunity to experience life on an outback farm while they offset their own travel footprint. 

Willing Workers on Organic Farms, or WWOOFing as it is also known, is a worldwide movement linking volunteers with organic farmers to promote cultural and educational experiences helping to build a sustainable global community.  


What do you do for us?

About 6 hours work a day doing a range of things, from tree planting, native seed collection, stone wall preservation, fencing, general farm chores, painting, gardening, cleaning and maintenance.

On arrival we sit down with you and work out what interests, ideas and passions you have so we can map out a plan of action. We want everyone to leave having had a super positive experience as a volunteer at Coodlie Park Farm Retreat.


What do I get in return?

A new Aussie family that wants you to have an amazing experience

  • Private room accommodation with shared facilities

  • Food – 3 home cooked meals a day and the rest

  • Learn about the Eyre Peninsula and Australia

  • Good karma

  • The amazing experience of living and working on real Aussie outback farm with access to a private beach and abundant native wildlife

  • Meet lots of other travellers who are stopping through on our Nullarbor Traveller adventure tours. As all our tours from Perth and Adelaide stop at Coodlie Park we’d recommend to jump on a tour, get off at Coodlie Park for then jump back on and finish the tour when you’re ready!

  • Check out one of our past volunteer’s blogs and get in touch if you think this is up your alley!
