Do you love talking to people about the array of great things to see and do in Warrnambool?

The Warrnambool Visitor Information Centre is on the lookout for friendly locals to volunteer their time to help the city’s tourists feel welcome.

Located at Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village, the centre helps people get the most out of their stay in Warrnambool.

Warrnambool Mayor Robert Anderson said that volunteers play a vital role in providing information and advice to visitors.

“Who better to welcome visitors to Warrnambool than someone with a wealth of local knowledge?” he said.

“Our city hosts thousands of tourists over the summer months and the more we can help them enjoy their stay, the more likely they are to come back and encourage others to do the same.

“This is a terrific opportunity to get your foot in the door in the vibrant tourism industry, or it can just be a way to meet friendly people from all over the world while giving back to the community.”

All training is provided and you can volunteer on days and times that suit you.

While volunteers are being sought to assist with tourist enquires, volunteers have the option to get into character and volunteer within Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village. If you fancy being a blacksmith, an old fashioned school ma’am, a printer or a sail maker, this is your chance.
