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. 

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 [email protected].
