The National Parks and Wildlife Service is calling for applications for field officers to work in spectacular remote locations around Bourke.

Northern Inland Branch Director, Rob Smith, said that the NPWS has four Field Officer positions for people who want a truly unique ‘office’ in some of NSW’s most spectacular remote locations.

“We’re looking for people who can turn their hand to all sorts of jobs from maintaining park facilities and firefighting to controlling pest animals and driving graders,” Mr Smith said.

“And all this happens in remote locations where our field officers look after the campgrounds at Gundabooka, the Darling River campground at Toorale and the Culgoa River campground, as well as picnic areas, walking tracks, lookouts and bird hides.

“Important parts of the job include pest and weed management to control goats, pigs and foxes and weeds to help the remarkable native animals and plants in our parks.”
