Become a volunteer!

There are volunteering opportunities at the Bass Strait Maritime Centre and on the Julie Burgess ketch.  There’s nothing stopping you from doing a bit for both. It’s all about your skills, experience and interest. 

Bass Strait Maritime Centre has four main volunteering activities

  • Visitor Services: Help make sure every visitor to the Centre has a great experience, which they’ll share with others.
  • Maintenance Services: Help make sure we’re on top of the wear, tear and repair of the exhibitions, building and grounds of the Centre.
  • Local History, Research and Collection Management Services: Help make sure the Centre’s collections are recorded, digitised and available to people researching local or family histories. 
  • Guiding and School Programme Services: Help make sure pre-booked tour groups and students get the most out of the Centre.

 

The Julie Burgess ketch has three main volunteering activities

  • Crewing: Help make sure the sailings of this historic ketch run smoothly and safely.
  • Visitor Services: Help make sure every passenger on board has a great experience which they’ll
    share with others.
  • Maintenance Services: Help make sure the vessel is in good condition and the mooring area neat
    and tidy.
