Donate your time

The Anzac Memorial depends on support from the community to assist us in preserving the memory of those who have served in war through remembrance and interpretation by volunteering their time. Anyone aged 18 years or over interested in the history of the Anzac Memorial and the involvement of New South Wales citizens who served their country in war or in peace keeping activities can apply to be a volunteer.

Please note that we are only able to accept volunteer applications when roles are advertised. Unfortunately we are unable to take on new volunteers in response to individual requests. However we would love to let you know when volunteer roles become available so please register your interest by emailing manager@anzacmemorial.nsw.gov.au.
