Bushtime Volunteering

We are currently recruiting for the Lake Gkula crew only. If you are a previous Woodfordia volunteer wishing to apply to be on this crew but do not know your returning volunteer codes, please email volunteers@woodfordia.com to have them sent to you.

Applications to volunteer for all other volunteer positions at Bushtime will open mid-October for returning volunteers and two weeks later for new volunteers.

If you are a previous Woodfordia volunteer, look out for the invitation in your email inbox with your returning volunteer codes included. If your contact details have changed or you are concerned you have missed the invitation, please email volunteers@woodfordia.com (after checking your junk mail or other folders, of course.)

October Lake Gkula Camping Volunteers

We are looking for a small crew to assist with the camping, mainly lake observers (with swim safety qualifications) and for the General Store and site maintenance. We will need some people to help in the week prior for setup, and people available all weekend to assist with operating the campground.

Please note, we are not using returning volunteer codes for this application as there are only a small number of positions available.


Lake Gkula Lookerafterers Wanted

Do you like lake? We lake it a lot, our gorgeous Lake Gkula. It’s growing up and developing beautifully but needs regular care and maintenance to keep it flourishing. We have a small but growing crew of dedicated volunteers who come out and do weeding around the edges, pruning and plant care, some skimming of algae and a bunch of tasks that will help the plants grow, the fish flourish and all the creatures that have come to live in the lake thrive.

You can come out for a day / week, a day / month, less or more, it’s up to you. We just ask you to complete this short little form and our head of the Lake Lookerafterer crew will get in touch with you to go through the how you can become part of this very important crew. You will also be able to come camp on site the night before or night after you volunteer and of course, go for a dip after the work is done.

Apply Now


We are looking for some dedicated Woodfordia-loving volunteers who can lend their efforts to keep the land looking beautiful. Woodfordia is in need of some much-needed care and with only a very small site crew, we need more hands to get the necessary work done.

We are looking for people who are physically fit and able to commit to 2 days* per week for a 2-3 month period. Volunteers in this programme have the option to stay on site but will need to be self-contained.
