Weekend volunteers-click here

The volunteers cabin is comfortable with a kitchen and sleeping accommodation.

​During the year weekend volunteers are rostered to visit the centre and assist with projects.


Important reminders:

  • Fresh water is a limited resource on the island and needs to be used wisely. Showers, drinking supplies, sinks and handbasins all use rainwater collected in tanks, Waterwise practices are encouraged for all visitors. Thanks. 
  • Activities undertaken by volunteers are varied:


Philip Freeman painting safety colours on posts around the waste water

evaporative area. 

Conducting a workplace health and safety clean up around the dam prior to 

student water quality testing lessons.


On Saturday 7 March 2015 volunteers recieved training in all aspects of working around the centre. WH&S was a major part of the program. Thanks to the North Keppel team for a great day.

Thanks to Philip Freeman for drawing these cabin diagrams in 2017 to allow visiting

teachers to allocate students to cabins.
