Volunteer to be Friends of Cabbage Tree Bay

Manly Council in partnership with Fisheries NSW is establishing a volunteer group for Cabbage Tree Bay No Take Aquatic Reserve. The purpose of the group is to:

  • educate visitors about the biodiversity of Cabbage Tree Bay and the importance of preserving and protecting this biodiversity,
  • increase public awareness of conservation issues within the reserve, and
  • provide visitor information services which encourages appreciation of the reserves values.


Sign up to be a Friend

There are two levels of membership to the group. Sign up to be a Friend of Cabbage Tree Bay by simply providing your email address. As a Friend you'll receive electronic newsletters and be kept informed about the Bay and the group's activities and events.




Sign Up to be a Volunteer

Alternatively you can sign up to be a Friends' of Cabbage Tree Bay Volunteer. Volunteers are required to donate 2-3 hours a month on a Saturday or Sunday during the summer months. Activities undertaken by the volunteers includes interacting with members of the public, conducting tours, providing information about the area to visitors, participation in local clean ups, Manly Council and Manly Environment Centre events and promotion of activities in the reserve such as research.

Volunteers must be prepared to commit to the above required hours on the ground at Cabbage Tree Bay as well as attendance at the required training sessions.

What happens next?

Once you have completed your application form you will be contacted for an interview. If successful you will then undergo a Volunteer Induction with Manly Council and be required to complete training about the reserve and the best ways to share this information with others.

The first group of volunteers started at Cabbage Tree Bay in early December 2012.

Thank you for your interest in Cabbage Tree Bay No Take Aquatic Reserve!
