Long Tom Hill and Wildlife Shelter Volunteering EASY / MEDIUM

Stanley State Forest, VIC

See more trips

Spoke to Glenda the shelter owner, she is very excited that she has a few people comming to help out for the weekend, we just need to be prepared for the cold but dry weather!

I have decided to move the camp to Yackandandah Holiday Park, hubby says I'm getting soft wanting hot showers, and a covered kitchen with open fire, wood supplied and power for my electric blanket! I say there's no point getting older without getting wiser! 


If you wish to join us it's $10 per night for power, water, toilets, showers and wood for the fire included. I do need to know numbers so I know how many sites to book.

If you still wish to bush camp, we can meet up with you as we pass the bush camps on the way to the shelter. Lunch plus morning and afternoon tea will be provided.


Julian and I are heading to Kangaloola Wildlife Shelter in the Stanley State Forest near Yackandandah over the Queens Birthday long weekend to do some of those jobs that just never get done; building new aviaries, clearing out a garage, chopping firewood and putting up shelters are just some of the jobs Glenda would love to have done!



a not for profit shelter with over 110 animals run by an amazingly passionate lady who has been working with wildlife for over 50yrs. 


• Friday - We will arrive late afternoon to secure camping spots and get the camp oven going to feed everyone who comes in on Friday night

 Arrive at Kangaloola for introduction and briefing before Glenda sets tasks for the day. Camp fireside meal (happy to cater for late arrivals) or head home

• Arrive at Kangaloola for briefing before Glenda sets tasks for the day. Consider dinner at Yackandandah pub as a group or camp fireside meal or head home

• Mon 10pm head out into Stanley State Forest to do some 4wd tracks and tackle Long Tom Hill (weather and conditions permitting). There are dirt bike and mountain bike tracks in the park if anyone is interested as well as a secret underground hut for walkers or head home

We are asking anyone who has some time over this weekend to come along and join us as many hands make for light work! We hope to be camping just 1km from the shelter and we are happy to have a hot meal ready and waiting for late arrivals on Friday night. Glenda will supply the materials and tools for all the jobs she would like us to work on, we are supplying the labour; in return we will ensure you are all well fed at lunch and am/pm tea. We anticipate our days being busy and are looking for people interested in giving something back. You will be surprised what can be achieved in just a few hours if this is all you have to spare!

Please note we are not asking you to commit for the whole weekend, just letting you know what our itinerary is in the hope you can spare a day or two or even a few hours.

Happy to answer any questions
