Perth Royal Show



Volunteering

The Perth Royal Show simply doesn’t go on without the help of our extraordinary volunteers.

Volunteers are responsible for much of the excitement at the Perth Royal Show, from helping run activations in the Agventure space, looking after the animals in the Nursery, to roving around the Show being helpful!

Volunteering at the Perth Royal Show is a fantastic way to experience the exhibitions and help out the community, while also getting a behind-the-scenes look at Perth’s most iconic annual event.

With endless hours of activities and entertainment every day, there are plenty of different ways to help out.

We’d also love to hear about any special skills or interests you have, so we can match you up with your perfect role.

We look forward to signing you up as a volunteer for the 2024 Perth Royal Show where you can be a part of the excitement and festivities.

General Interests

Agriculture and Education

AgVenture Hill, the Perth Royal Show’s education precinct, helps connect the country to the city and will delight show goers with everything about WA agriculture.

Agricultural Hall of Fame

Volunteers will ideally have an interest in history and agriculture.

Volunteers in the Hall greet visitors, share some history about the Hall, the art and the people that are celebrated there as part of the rich fabric of Western Australia’s Agricultural history.

Animals

Our animal patting activations may be the first time a person has had the opportunity to get close to animals. Your role as a volunteer is to enhance the experience of the public by welcoming them, giving them a smile, answering questions, and always maintaining the safety of animals and the public.

Cheese Toasties

Cheese toasties, located in the Dairy Pavilion and Food Forum, are a popular snack at the Show! Apart from being extremely tasty, they help make that connection between cows, milk, and cheese. This is a very busy role, so you need to work fast and there are long periods of standing.

Creative Arts and Cookery

The Creative Arts and Cookery competition is one of the longest standing exhibitions at the Perth Royal Show and is very popular. The role of volunteers in Creative Arts and Cookery is to interact and engage with visitors and ensure the pavilion is kept tidy, clean, and safe for all patrons and visitors, and to bring it to the attention of Chief Stewards or staff if something requires attention.

Customer Service - Information Booth

The Information Booth is a busy, fast-paced environment, where exceptional customer service and a thorough knowledge of the Show is a must. You will be assisting Show patrons with their enquiries and giving accurate information in a timely fashion. Be prepared to be asked the same question many times!

Customer Service - Various roles

If you have excellent interpersonal skills and love to engage and help people, we have various opportunities available. You may be required to greet patrons as they arrive, hand out ID wristbands or rove the Showground providing maps and directions.

 

Dogs

Volunteers are required to assist the stewards in the Dog Section with tasks to ensure the efficiency of the competition. Also to enhance the experience of the public by welcoming them, giving them a smile, answering questions, and always maintaining the safety and the animals and the public.

Pigeons and Poultry

Pigeons and Poultry have been judged at the Perth Royal Show since at least 1930 and across more than 500 classes. Birds stay on display for the duration of the show.

 

Volunteers assist with:

    • watering and feeding the birds
    • answering questions from the public
    • the displays in the pavilion
    • general wellbeing of the bird

 

Sensory Space

This designated space provides a reduced stimulation environment that allows people to calm, relax, re-organise, and refocus before heading back to the Show.

 

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre will be staging a production called Show Day, in the Ellie Eaton Pavilion, during the Perth Royal Show. Volunteers would be welcoming families into the space and managing flow of people in and out of the pavilion. Volunteer dates and times to be advised.

Volunteer Hub

The Volunteer Hub is a great place for volunteers to relax and grab a refreshment. We need volunteers to assist with setting up the hub for lunch service and serving, packing of lunches for delivery to areas of the Showground, restocking as required. Sometimes a quick tidy up of the area is also needed.
