2018 Recruitment - now open

The 2018 Show will run from Friday, 23 March to Tuesday 3 April.

Volunteers are an integral part of the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Last year's Show attracted more than 300 volunteers working across a variety of areas including animals, arts, competitions, entertainment and children’s educational activities.

The fun, excitement and community spirit draws volunteers back to the Show year after year. Without volunteers generously devoting their time to the Show, it wouldn’t be the successful event that it is today.

If you’re looking for an experience of a lifetime and want to be part of Australia’s largest ticketed annual event, we’d love to have you on board!

Places are limited so hurry and apply today!
