"You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give." - Winston Churchill

Volunteers are vital to the ongoing success of our programs and make a big difference in a small organisation like ours. Discover a role that’s right for you and join us today!


We welcome people from all backgrounds, skills and life experiences.

  • Volunteers need to be 18 years or older.

  • The minimum age for event helpers is 16 years.

  • The minimum age for work experience students is 15 years.

The Magical Getaway Foundation is proud to be a child-safe organisation.  Our volunteer recruitment process includes background checks to ensure all volunteers share our commitment to child safety.


Commitment is flexible and up to the volunteer, however, some roles may require a minimum commitment such as a project-based volunteer.

Event-based volunteering

Help at upcoming events or help with the organisation of an event.

This includes fundraising activities such as sausage sizzles and highway collections.

Skill-based volunteering

Everyone has different areas of expertise. If you have a skill that you think may help achieve our mission, please let us know.

Examples of skilled volunteers who give their time include:

  • Corporate consultants who advise on our strategic plans

  • Photographers who help capture family stories

  • Graphic designers creating artwork and marketing collateral

  • Digital marketing professionals advising on our website and digital volunteering platforms

Holiday-based volunteering

Meet with and be the first point of contact for our families on their first ever holiday.

Most holidays are held in regional Victoria including places such as Phillip Island, Inverloch and Lorne.


Thank you for expressing your interest in volunteering with us.
