The Australian National Botanic Gardens is now recruiting for Volunteer Guides to start in 2022.

No botanical background is required to apply. We offer a training program, mentorship and professional development opportunities to equip you with the knowledge and skills you need for guiding.

You can apply to become a Volunteer Guide and select to work as a walking and/or driving guide:
