Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation (WGAC) is seeking a volunteer Camp Manager (individual or couple) from June – mid-September 2022 at Munurru (King Edward River) campground. Munurru Camp is situated on the King Edward billabong at the Port Warrender Road crossing. Munurru Camp is the gateway to Wunambal Gaambera Country for visiting Ngauwudu (Mitchell Plateau) and our iconic Punamii-Uunpuu (Mitchell Falls). Munurru Camp is a popular bush camp, billabong (swimming), walk trails and nearby rock art sites.
The Camp Manager leads and assists Wunambal Gaambera’s Uunguu Rangers and Traditional Owner Guides (male and female) grow capacity to operate and grow our tourist facility. The established campgrounds can accommodate up to 100 camping and coach sites plus regular day visitors; and has a serviced management camp area including power, ablutions, phone and internet.
The Managers’ job entails supervising and mentoring a small camp management team, vehicles and equipment to ensure campground and cultural facilities are serviced daily, campers enjoy their stay, have an entry permit (Uunguu Visitor Pass), paid their camp fees and have an informative and authentic experience in our country. Our Rangers and Guides conduct scheduled and on-request cultural rock art tours.
Munurru is also a training base for Uunguu Rangers and Traditional Owners with the aim to conduct regular cultural activities and experiences for visitors; and build capacity to operate first class visitor facilities.
The Camp Manager we are seeking would ideally be a couple, experienced well-travelled north Australia 4WDrivers with own camper/caravan seeking a few months stay in an idyllic location to work, pass on your practical skills and experiences of operating a good tourist camp facility, gain an authentic experience with Wunambal Gaambera people and our camper guests, and the hope you will want to come back for another season!
WGAC will provide a volunteer stipend (up to $120 per day), food and camp facilities, insurance and reasonable start and end regional relocation expenses. The term is from mid June to mid September 2022 with one 7-day mid-term break. Munurru is within the Uunguu Indigenous Protected Area – no pets allowed.
