  • Volunteering at the Birdsville races


Welcome! Thanks for your interest in volunteering.

There is no better way to experience an event that to contribute to making it happen. You will find volunteering at the races to be a challenging, rewarding and exciting experience.

We rely on the generosity and kindness of our wonderful volunteers to make the Birdsville Races possible. You’ll work as part of a small, supportive and fun team of like minded people, and the time you give will make a real difference to the event, it’s patrons, and to the quiet town of Birdsville.

To say thankyou to our volunteers, we offer the following benefits:

  1. A polo shirt
    Souvenir medallion
    Limited edition 135 year anniversary souvenir program
    Stubby holder
