Backyard Campout

Grab your mates, get outdoors and help wildlife!

This winter, Wildlife Warriors around the world are reconnecting with wildlife and wilderness by camping out in their own backyards – all in support of conservation!
From the lounge room floor to the Nullarbor, no matter where you are, grab your mates, pitch a tent and take some time to connect with the amazing world around us.



Run, don’t walk here
and register your backyard campout! We’ll be in touch soon after to ensure you have everything you need to host an exciting campout.


You have from May through to July to host your campout, so line up a date, pick a location and invite your guests! Be a Wildlife Warrior and care for our wildlife and wild places by planning some awesome activities for your campout. You could turn off technology for the night or count how many nocturnal animals you can spot.


Enjoy your evening! Roast marshmallows, stoke the fire and reconnect with wildlife and nature in your backyard!


Be sure to bank yours funds before July 31 to be in the running for 'camptastic' prizes!
