World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) has been offering unique gap year experiences to people from all around Australia for 40 years. It’s a great way to travel cheaply, learn about organic farming, gain some independence and a host of other skills.
You’ll do 6-8 hours a day of work, 5 days a week, and in return receive free meals and accommodation with a host family, meaning you don’t need to break the bank to get hands-on experience. WWOOF offers plenty of support for you during your stay to make sure you have a safe and fun time. There are lots of different hosts to choose from, including:
- Vineyard operators
- Coffee producers
- Oyster and pearl farmers
- Cattle stations
- Butterfly farms
- And many more!
Signing up as a volunteer costs $70 for 2 years, and WWOOF is kindly giving us 30% off by using the code studyworkgrow, exclusively for our readers.
