    new zealand volunteer work 22nd Sep 16 at 9:36 AM
    I am looking at travelling to new zealand to work. Issue is I am over 35 so can not get a working visa. I can do voluntary work for food and board so was looking at doing that. I am therefore looking at trying to find sites that will help me to contact people for free. The only ones I can find seem to want me to pay to contact people. Can anybody help me thanks.

    Is a worldwide site and you could see if it suits you in the UK, there is a joining fee, something like £18 for two years, but you can view hosts to a limited degree without paying. I've done it for years on and off, it's well worth the cost ands absolutely loads of NZ hosts.

    Google WOOFING, again I think you may have to pay for full info, but WOOFING and WOOFER is a widely understood term in NZ for what you want to do.

    Consider housesitting, again you could build your profile before you go and that experience may put you in a good position for some of the better located housesits. and

    Again a fee for all these sites, I have used them all and they do deliver what they say.

    Relocating vehicles is also pretty popular for a cheap means of transport if you're flexible,

    Have fun!

    Look at sites like Wicked Campers to see if they need any motorhomes relocating, usually from South to North. When we did it we paid 10$ a day and they paid for the ferry between South and North islands.
