Helping at Noah Beach
THE call is going out for volunteers at the Noah Beach campsite next season, after a successful year with many happy helpers.
Anyone willing to give up their time and work for free to manage the beautiful Noah Beach campsite is being encouraged to apply for a volunteer caretaker position.
Just 50m from the beach and underneath the forest canopy, the site is a popular spot for tourists looking to explore the Daintree.
The successful applicants will camp for free at the site from the end of May to November in return for being responsible for the general maintenance of the facilities and keeping the campground looking good.
The Friends of Parks initiative aims to enhance volunteering in national parks across Queensland.
Two recent volunteers, Barry and Maureen Drews, said it was an amazing experience.
‘‘Noah Beach is so beautiful, volunteering here was a great experience,’’ Maureen said.
‘‘We stayed for three weeks and felt like we learned a lot from the rangers.
‘‘We could then share the knowledge we had with other visitors.
‘‘We saw a flyer and decided to volunteer, we are very glad we did because it is such a beautiful spot.
‘‘Volunteering at Noah Beach was a really great way to spend time in one area, getting to know the locals and also other visitors to the region.’’
National Parks will provide an onsite induction and a suitable site for a tent, trailer or van. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
