Volunteering for the Munda Biddi Trail Foundation offers great rewards for those willing to participate. Those who choose to undertake this rewarding activity do so for many reasons, the most common being:
- To get fit and enjoy the Trail
- To make new friends and get involved in the off-road riding and cycle touring community
- To use their skills and expertise in a volunteer role
- To develop skills in leadership, Trail maintenance and guiding.
- To help conserve and maintain the Trail.
- To help spread the word and raise people’s awareness of a world class facility that is freely available for everyone to use
- To receive rewards from both the Foundation and the Department of Parks and Wildlife such as discount vouchers, merchandise and exclusive volunteer events
Whatever your reason, we would love to hear from you to discuss how you can best help. Check our volunteers FAQs for further information.
While the preferred age for volunteer registration is 16 years and above, children under 16 years may be accepted at the discretion of the Volunteer Coordinator and the Department of Parks and Wildlife; depending on the nature of the task, the environment and the risks associated. A child’s registration form will only be accepted if the parent / guardian of the child have co-signed and have undertaken to supervise their participation at all times.
