WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
On arrival into Brisbane you will make your way to the local office where you will receive orientation and briefing. After your induction you may have the first weekend free, either in the city centre or at your first project site, before starting on the project.
WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?
During the project you will be provided with comfortable, clean, shared accommodation. The type of accommodation will vary depending on the nature of the project and it's exact location.Typical accommodation can include hostels, shared houses, caravans or camping. You will normally stay close to where you are working (usually within walking distance) but occasionally you might take public transportation to sites further afield or travel will be arranged to your work site.
WHAT WILL I BE EATING?
Meals will reflect the local diet within Australia and New Zealand. For breakfast, cereals, bread or toast, tea and coffee is supplied. Lunch is normally a self-made sandwich and fruit; in the evening everyone enjoys a meal prepared by the group, typically something like pasta, roast or a vegetarian option. Volunteers help with the preparation of meals and cleaning up of dishes, plus some domestic duties as required. Volunteers are relied upon to participate fully in the program, and the evening meal is a popular part of the day.
