The Abbotsford Convent is a dynamic, community-focused arts driven site. It spans 16 acres; houses almost 300 learning, wellbeing and creative practitioners and organisations, and now welcomes over one million visitors a year! With a very small staff base, the Abbotsford Convent Foundation is always looking for dedicated and passionate volunteers to help out.

Tour guides are a valuable source of information and history. The tour guides provide visitors with a solid understanding of how the site came to be, what it is now and how they can get involved.
On busier days, the Convent welcomes up to 5,000 people over a very short amount of time. That’s why we need a whole army of volunteers beside us, to give us a much-needed helping hand.
The heritage gardens and outdoor spaces are highly dependent on the dedication and passion of our garden volunteers.
Occasionally we need a helping hand in the office for little projects such as mail-outs, databases and general filing.
