Australia has a community minded population with a strong history of volunteering. Australian Bureau of Statistics research shows that 35% of Australians over the age of 18 volunteer at least once a fortnight, donating over 700 millions hours of work each year.
This community spirit has helped Australians through many a tough time, as we are seeing now with the thousands of volunteers lending a hand to clean up in the wake of the devastating Queensland floods.
