Volunteer at Cairns Festival


Volunteer at Cairns Festival

In 2018 the Cairns Festival will run from Friday 24 August - Sunday 2 September. Volunteer support at Cairns Festival is essential in making some of our city's BIGGEST community events a reality.

Volunteering is a great way to gain new experiences, meet new people and have a lot of fun.

We require anyone who wants to volunteer to complete an application form so we can ensure we match the right people with the right jobs. Read more about the roles on offer and download your application form HERE ( PDF, 0.38 MB ).

As a Cairns Festival Volunteer you will:

  • Meet new people and become an essential part of the Cairns Festival team
  • Gain skills and training in specific areas that you can be recognised for
  • Enjoy the Cairns Festival events in greater depth
  • Receive a Cairns Festival t-shirt

Under 18?

If you are under 18 and would like to volunteer, we need consent of a parent or guardian. Please contact Cairns Festival directly.
