The Wild Mountains Trust is an independent, community focussed, non-profit organisation providing leadership in environmental education and conservation.

The Trust has acquired land south of Rathdowney adjoining the World Heritage Border Ranges National Park for a nature reserve and venue for education. On this magnificent site a world class Centre is being built. Here, using the unique purpose-built residential facility, quality experiential environmental education for the whole community will be provided.

In subtropical and eucalypt forests participants will have the opportunity to discover an amazing natural world. At the same time Wild Mountains can reinforce its educational programs with examples of renewable power generation.

WOW… another example of how the community supports our work. We have seen a steady stream of volunteers, Griffith Uni students and WWOOFers from around the world coming and making our VWs a huge success.

This year’s VW Week was so ridiculously good. It was one of the best we have had in a long while and believe me we’ve had some doozies.
