Get Involved and volunteer

Maryborough Open House relies on volunteers to assist in the facilitation of visits by the general public to 22 buildings/homes across the city.  If you have pride in your city and want to make a difference, register your interest to be a volunteer in 2018. 

What are the benefits?

  • The opportunity to meet others who share your interest in architecture, design and history.
  • An invitation to the Thankyou party for the Maryborough Open House volunteers.


What’s involved?

  • Meet and greet visitors
  •  Work with site owners and managers to ensure that visitors are welcomed and follow any necessary building requirements.
  • Selling programs at selected sites
  • Count visitor numbers using a clicker
  • Direct and manage queues


What is the commitment?

  • Work one volunteer shift (approx 3.5 hours) on Open House Saturday.
  • Either the morning shift 9.45am -1pm or the afternoon shift from 12.45pm to 4pm. (This provides an opportunity for you to enjoy access to buildings before or after your shift so you don't miss out)
  • Attend one of our required training sessions before Maryborough Open House & to pick up your volunteer lanyard pass and information pack.
