The Australian War Memorial’s long tradition of enhancing our visitor experience through tours showcasing the Memorial’s galleries and telling the story of Australia’s wartime experience commenced over 40 years ago. With more than 100 active volunteers, the Australian War Memorial Voluntary Guides provide world-class service 364 days a year, delivering up to 16 free tours each day.
Extensive training is required to provide successful applicants with the tools needed to deliver an exceptional visitor experience. Accordingly, the Memorial conducts only one recruitment process for voluntary guides each year. Formal training commences in late February and concludes mid-July, with a further self-directed component running for an additional three to four months afterwards.
While we actively recruit voluntary guides only across December and January, we happily accept all applications lodged outside this period. Anyone submitting an application during this time will be contacted early in the New Year to re-confirm interest.
Additional information relating to the voluntary guide training can be viewed at the below links.
