Volunteer opportunities

  • Gardening – enjoy the bushland setting while weeding, mulching, fertilising, pruning and installing irrigation in the landscaped gardens.
  • Maintenance - support the building of new tracks, as well as all aspects of garden maintenance including oiling, sanding, pressure washing and garden edging.
  • Visitor Guide - if you are you comfortable speaking in front of groups, enjoy sharing stories, and inspiring others then becoming a volunteer guide may be for you. Guides provide tours through the Botanic Garden for adult community and tour groups. Guides share stories of the plants, animals and history that make the site special.
  • Visitor information – volunteers welcome visitors from around the world and provide information about the reserve to enhance their experience. They also assist with visitor health and safety messages and adherence to site rules. If you enjoy meeting and talking to new people then the visitor information role is an ideal opportunity for you.

Expectations and support:

  • Volunteers participate in an induction program prior to commencing. This involves online and face-to-face training.
  • Regular meetings, workshops and newsletters are provided to help support volunteers in their role.
  • Volunteers are encouraged to attend regularly, preferably 1-3 times per month.
  • Volunteers are required to obtain a Blue Card for working with children.
