Volunteers Registration 2018

How to get involved

Would you like to help us celebrate the Antarctic community in Tasmania?  Are you interested in Australia’s scientific program in the Southern Ocean?  Do you have an Antarctic connection yourself?  Do you enjoy working with enthusiastic people for a good cause?  We’d like to hear from you!

The Australian Antarctic Festival (AAF) has a brilliant program of exhibitions, activities, tours and lectures, almost all of it entirely free to the public.  When we do ask for contributions, it’s to support the work of the Mawson’s Huts Foundation, caretakers of one of Australia’s most isolated and unusual possessions:  the original 1912 expedition huts at Cape Denison in East Antarctica.

We’ve got all sorts of roles to fill:  tour guides, safety marshals, information staff and lots more.  You’ll meet old Antarctic hands and current expeditioners, young scientists and program leaders.  You’ll get aboard the Aurora Australis icebreaker, into the Australian Antarctic Exhibition in Princes Wharf One, on board the RSV Investigator and explore the work of the CSIRO and IMAS, all in on great location.  You might help us look after exhibitions at Macquarie Point or TMAG, accompany tours to Hobart Airport to see RAAF Globemaster or fill one of a dozen different jobs.

And, of course, you’ll enjoy a great Volunteer’s Barbecue after the show.

Interested?  Just pop your contact details into our Volunteers Registration Form below and we’ll be in contact shortly to discuss what you would like to do.

For further information please call  Liz Lord  0427 323 953  or the office on 03 6223 3375.
