How You Can Help

WANT TO VOlunteer your Skills?

Would you like to volunteer your efforts to help us realise our vision for Quinlan’s? A wide range of skills are useful, including painting, gardening, building, plumbing and many more. From time to time we have pre-planned volunteer working bee days where specific projects are undertaken. These are advertised on our website under Quinlan’s Events. However, we are always interested in general offers of help so if you are interested please email your resume and character references to 

VOlunteers at work

We rely heavily on volunteers to make things happen. Generous donation of materials by Rockote and a working bee of volunteers produced this wonderful outdoor oven which is a focal point of the Quinlandia day camp where we hold Bush Tucker lunches and cooking schools.


Ian, an inspired ‘in kind’ supporter

Equally, supporters who offer goods and services are crucial to delivering the Quinlan’s vision. A standout individual example is Ian Harling who is a local resident plumber and tourism operator who supports us with regular plumbing work onsite at Quinlan’s. Since meeting Deborah at an early Bush Tucker lunch, Ian has completed many tasks which have secured vital infrastructure that underpins the practical operations and our longer term vision.

BE A quinlan's sponsor

Peter and Julanne’s original bequest set the scene of a generous benefactor tradition. Others have followed providing funds that are essential for us to develop Quinlan’s facilities. We need your donations to deliver its vision. You can join this select group of loyal supporters and help us by donating specifically to Quinlan’s. Please click here to donate.


help us by donating things quinlan's needs

There are many things we still need to upgrade Quinlan’s facilities for it to realise its full potential. Early supporters donated a wide array of goods and services that enabled Quinlan’s to become operational. These included water tanks, plumbing services, and an outdoor oven. We still need the following items:

  • Water tanks
  • Plumbing materials and services
  • Building materials and services
  • Fencing materials and services
  • Paint and painting services

We also welcome suggestions of items and services not listed here that you think might be useful. Please email us if you can help out with any of these:
