Floriade vollies

The success of Floriade would not be possible without the dedication and enthusiasm of our wonderful volunteers.

We had a fantastic response from the community in 2016, with over 170 volunteers coming on board.
Becoming a volunteer is a fantastic way to support Canberra – all the while surrounded by spectacular garden beds and world-class entertainment!

About Volunteering

Becoming a volunteer is a great opportunity to contribute to Floriade. You should consider becoming a Floriade volunteer if you enjoy gardening and horticulture, meeting new people, helping visitors or being outdoors.

Volunteers will be provided with training, uniforms and the opportunity to participate in the highly-popular ‘bulb dig’ – you can take home some Floriade bulbs! Volunteers are required to complete a minimum of six shifts.
