Campground host volunteer program

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.
