Volunteer with us
The Innisfail Museum is staffed entirely by volunteers. Whilst there is no requirement for members to become a volunteer, all members interested in doing so are very welcome.
Volunteers can and do make an important contribution to the Innisfail Museum and there are many different ways to help. If you would like to bring your talents to the Society and Museum as a volunteer we’d encourage you to discuss the possibility with a member of the Society by contacting us via phone or email or dropping into the Museum during opening hours.
Because of insurance considerations all volunteers at the Museum are required to be financial members of the Historical Society.
