About this opportunity

The Caboolture Warplane & Flight Heritage Museum is situated on the perimeter of the Caboolture Airfield. We are dedicated to providing visitors with a chance to learn about the history of both military and civil aviation and as such, rely on the efforts of our volunteers to play an important role to carry on the Museum’s 36 years existence.

We’re looking for people to offer personalised one-on-one guided tours. Apart from the operational aircraft, the museum has an extensive range of displays and exhibits depicting much of Australia’s flight heritage. A tour guide's role will be based on educating visitors on the aircraft that flew in various theatres of war as well as understanding and imparting history from WWII through to the Vietnam war. You’ll also be able to greet and admit visitors, answer questions, sell books, raffle tickets and build friendships with fellow volunteers. We welcome ex service personnel as well as civilians who can confidently communicate and respond well one-on-one or with a group of people. Education and support are provided as you build exhibit knowledge. Are you available for one day or more per week? Our particular need is requiring someone to help on Thursdays.

Thank you for considering there’s a never-ending value in representing the best and worst of history and bring to life the stories of those who sacrificed their all. Age is no barrier nor is experience, just bring a passion for aviation and history.
