Donate your time

The Anzac Memorial relies on the generosity of its volunteer Memorial Ambassadors to enhance the visitor experience. Ambassadors actively engage with members of the public and act as hosts for the Memorial, conveying its history and purpose in an informative and respectful way. 

We are currently accepting expressions of interest to be a Memorial Ambassador. If you have an interest in military or social history, architecture and art, and are comfortable with both public speaking and customer service, apply now through the Volunteers NSW website

Please note that we are only able to accept volunteer applications when roles are advertised. If you would like to know when we will be recruiting next, please register your interest by emailing manager@anzacmemorial.nsw.gov.au.
