Who can join WWOOF Australia


Anyone between 18 & 80 can join WWOOF Australia, members can be of any nationality - including Australian. It should be noted that participants require a level of physical fitness, maturity and independence to participate in the program.

Due to the physical and mental demands of the WWOOF experience, participants should have at least average physical and mental fitness. The nature of the program is such that it is generally unsuitable for persons suffering from psychiatric or psychological conditions. If in doubt and you would like to discuss this with us, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and/or your Medical practitioner to discuss the matter.

WWOOFers must be willing to do 4 to 6 hours of farming /gardening work in exchange for a days food and board (depending on factors like season, workload, quality of their work and the accommodation, etc). These hours can be flexible so WWOOFers have free days but this must be negotiated with the Host.

WWOOF Hosts will want to check your WWOOF App or WWOOF Membership book against your passport or other photo ID when you arrive. If you do not have a WWOOF membership, a Host can arrange for you to join WWOOF and have immediate access to the WWOOF App or have your WWOOF Book sent to the Hosts address, you will need to show the host your Photo ID and pay them for your membership.
