The Victorian Backcountry Festival is a 100% volunteer run event, by the community for the community. It will be back at Hotham this winter with an action packed schedule of talks, tours, workshops, a demo village and outdoors bar over three days in September.

Volunteering with us is a great opportunity to make new backcountry friends and join a group of like-minded outdoor individuals who want to help out and support the festival and the adventure community it represents. We are hosting 2 volunteer meetup events in early June, in Bright and Melbourne.

The event has been growing for years and is currently welcoming new volunteers:
– Event Coordination
– Project Management
– Admin and Office Support
– Outdoor Bar
– Speakers / Films
– Tour Guides
– Sponsorship and Partnerships
– Marketing and Social Media
– General hands-on on-the-ground help during the festival weekend

The festival will be a family friendly, welcoming and inclusive event. We welcome volunteers of all walks of life regardless of their gender, marital/parental status, ethnic origin, nationality, age, background, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity.
Volunteers will be given priority first access to backcountry tours.
