Volunteer as a campground host

Volunteering as a campground host is a fantastic way to see our magnificent parks while at the same time providing a valuable service to other campers and Parks Victoria rangers.

Campground hosts enjoy working in some of Victoria’s most amazing wilderness areas, learn about the local environment and help others to experience all that our parks have to offer.

All volunteers are trained and receive ongoing support from the team at Parks Victoria.

Campground hosts: 

  • Provide a friendly contact point for both Parks Victoria staff and the public at popular campsites
  • Provide orientation to new arrivals and general information on the area and its attractions to campers
  • Provide park information and interpretation to campground visitors and ensure that the campsite is a safe place for all
  • Alert rangers to disturbances or breaches of park regulations.

Campground hosts must be self-motivated, have a good level of fitness as some of the campsites are in remote locations, have excellent communication skills and experience in camping. Applicants must be 18yrs or over to apply.

Volunteers are provided with access to free camping (and a tent if needed), uniform and support whilst in the park as well as information and training to ensure that they are safe and understand the cultural landscape of the park.
