Become a volunteer

We love our volunteers, and would not be able to deliver our events without you.

Volunteers are the backbone of the Open House model. Without your generous support, our programs simply could not run. The public’s primary interaction with Open House Melbourne is you! Your passion and enthusiasm for the program ensures a successful day for all.

Registrations are currently closed. Come back to this page closer to our Open House Melbourne Weekend in July 2019.

2019 OPEN HOUSE building Volunteers

Building Volunteers are vital for ensuring visitors have the best possible experience by providing building access, tour guidance and answering questions.

In return, our volunteers receive front of queue access, a uniform kit, a free copy of the printed program (RRP $25) and invitations to special events and tour opportunities throughout the year. We need over 700 volunteers to make the Weekend possible, and we’d love for you to join us.
