Devils@Cradle offers opportunities for volunteers to assist our dedicated team here at Devils@Cradle!

Volunteer positions are ideal for interested travellers, work experience, students and local residents that are interested and wanting to get involved in assisting in several aspects of work being carried out throughout the sanctuary.

Volunteers essentially shadow and assist the senior staff and keepers with various day to day tasks around the sanctuary including husbandry, maintenance, cleaning, sanctuary operations, field monitoring (seasonal) and the orphan rehabilitation program (seasonal).

Both short-term and long-term volunteer positions are available, for periods of time between a minimum of 4 days, and up to several months. Being in a remote area, such volunteer work does typically require the volunteer to stay at Cradle Mountain, or be within the local area for a length of time. There is no charge to volunteer at the facility, however it is the expectation that whilst here volunteers are responsible for being self-sufficient and making all travel arrangements themselves.

This is an exciting opportunity to gain experience within a working conservation facility in Tasmania’s premier, and only, species specific conservation facility, right on the doorstep to Tasmania’s iconic wilderness, and the ‘Cradle Mt Lake St Clair National Park and World Heritage Area’.

We have very limited spaces for volunteers, so bookings are essential and volunteers must be 18 years or older.

We invite people to enquire by emailing info@devilsatcradle.com.

“I really miss you all it was a great place to spend several months the staff and the experience made it the greatest thing I did during my whole time in Australia… I would really like to come back one day, still think about it a lot…”
