Our Volunteers

In 2019, forty-five amazing volunteers gave 11,000 hours of their time to the Mareeba Heritage Centre.  The estimated value of that volunteer time was $464 750.  This value naturally helps the bottom-line, but more importantly, the dedication and commitment of our volunteers to our community , is immeasurable.

What they do

Our Visitor Centre Volunteers are ambassadors for the Mareeba region. Our Volunteers provide a warm, friendly and sincere welcome to visitors to Mareeba, thus encouraging visitors to stay longer and assist visitors with all inquiries in an unbiased manner!  Volunteers are delighted to share local stories, news and only the things that locals know!

Our Museum Centre Volunteers care for and seek to improve the Museum exhibitions.  Their tasks are wonderfully varied from researching and sourcing new exhibition pieces, accessioning pieces, planning and setting up exhibitions, cleaning and maintaining, chatting with visitors, sharing information and tour guiding.
