Wildmob is not-for-profit and non-political. Wildmob takes the 4C’s approach, they’re saving over 90 threatened species (Conservation), they see gains as being only short-term unless we respect the culture within which changes are made (Culture). Wildmob is all about collaboration because no-one can save the world alone (Community) and they make sure that their conservation efforts improve local economies (Commerce). “We do what matters”.

The environment and community of Norfolk Island are fortunate to be included in Wildmob’s project radar. As part of the Norfolk Island Conservation Project Wildmob successfully launched their volunteers program last November and they now have 5 upcoming conservation trips in February, May, July, September and November 2015.

The Norfolk Island Conservation Project will involve hands on work within Norfolk Island National Park, other reserves and on private land. A large focus will be on bush-land restoration to secure further habitat for almost 50 threatened or endangered species, and up to 18 species of seabirds that breed within the Norfolk Island group.

Volunteers work alongside like-minded people, National Park rangers, local naturalist and scientists and Norfolk Islanders. There will be plenty of time to enjoy the natural wonders of the islands; snorkeling in pristine ocean waters, bushwalking and bird-watching along National park walking trails, exploring the World Heritage listed Kingston and Arthurs Vale ruins from the islands convict history, and enjoying the renowned hospitality of Norfolk Island.

The project is open to anybody with an interest in nature, a reasonable level of fitness, and a sense of fun and adventure. A Wildmob project leader will be working alongside participants. Numbers are strictly limited to 10 participants.

Volunteer trip package prices start from $1499 per person ex Brisbane and $1539 per person from Sydney. Package includes return airfare to Norfolk Island, all pre-paid airline taxes, return airport transfers, 7 nights twin share accommodation, shared use of van and hire car for 7 days, all meals provided by Wildmob, half day island orientation tour, complimentary $10 internet hot spot and use of Norfolk Island mobile phone provided by Wildmob accommodation partner plus local discount shopping card.

Norfolk Island Travel Centre


Norfolk Island Travel Centre is an award winning travel agency that specialises in quality, personalised travel. Norfolk has a unique beauty of its own, with its renowned tall majestic pines, sheer cliff faces, coral reefs and beautiful beaches. Almost one third of the island is devoted to National Parks and Reserves. But Norfolk Island is far more than a picturesque island in the South Pacific, it is paradise with a past. What was once a convicts’ nightmare is now the tranquil home of the descendants from the Mutiny on the Bounty, who have their own unique culture and their own language. There is much to see and do on Norfolk Island: fascinating historic tours, see Kingston which is a World Heritage Listed area,outdoor re-enactments of the Bounty Mutiny (with parts played by actual descendants of Fletcher Christian), ‘Light and Sound’ shows, eco-tours, glass bottom boat coral reef trips, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, dining out in the numerous fine restaurants, bush walking, scenic horse riding, golf on what has been called the world’s most beautiful golf course, bowls, tennis, and squash. Take advantage of Norfolk's tax-free shopping or perhaps simply take some time out to relax and enjoy Norfolk's peaceful existence.
