Volunteering opportunities

The Great Western Tiers Visitor Centre and the Deloraine and Districts Folk Museum
We are always on the lookout for willing volunteers to fill a range of vital roles at both these iconic attractions. Phone 6362 5280 or call in to the centre at 98-100 Emu Bay Road, Deloraine and collect a Volunteer Introduction Pack.

Community Cars
The Deloraine and Westbury community cars provide a vital service, transporting over 1200 passengers each year. Without this service, many people would find it difficult to make it to their medical appointments. For more information about becoming a volunteer driver or to help with coordination, phone 0427 504 546 (Deloraine) or 6393 2717 (Westbury)

Other Opportunities
There are also a number of sporting clubs, show societies and not-for-profit organisations that make valuable contributions to the Meander Valley Community. These are great opportunities to share and gain new skills whilst lending a hand. Visit to find a role that suits you.
