Taronga Zoo As needed As needed

Special Events Volunteers assist with larger, irregular events such as Twilight Concerts, Dreamnight, spcecial exhibitions such as 'Dinosurs in the Wild' and other large scale events.

We recommend you check our current vacancies page regularly to check for any special voluneer roles available.

Our Visitor Services Volunteers are also involved in Taronga special events, so if you would like to make a more regular volunteering contribution to the zoo we recommend you check out this program.

Is this right for me?

This role is suitable for those who want to help out at Taronga and are “people people’’„but have less time to contribute to volunteering.
Special events volunteers need to be available at short notice.

  • Minimum commitment:    3-12 months, as required.
  • Financial contribution:     $25 joining fee

Long Term Volunteers are also asked to maintain a current Zoofriends membership for the duration of their volunteering

What training is required?

Special Events Volunteers are required to complete a one day induction course. 

Additional training is provided either on the job or in class training sessions for specific events.
