Please put these dates into your diaries. If you can help the Park even for a few days in any of these dates you will be welcomed. The working bees are always good fun, not too strenuous and you always meet a lot of kindred spirits.

We are reassured by all Parks staff of the valuable work we do that would not be done otherwise. Parks are often struggling for resources and time so our work is invaluable for them and our much loved Freycinet National Park.
