Tourism Volunteers Wanted to Join Somerset Team

PASSIONATE Somerset residents are being sought to join Council’s volunteering team as tourism ambassadors.

Somerset Regional Council is seeking volunteers to join its existing tourism team and help assist visitors to the region.

Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann said tourism was a growth industry and volunteering offered plenty of rewards.

“Council has four accredited visitor information centres operating at Toogoolawah, Esk, Kilcoy and Fernvale that promote tourism and all these facilities welcome and cater for tourists to Somerset,” Cr Lehmann said.

“Council has five tourism officers to support volunteers and offer training as well as deliver various key tourism and event programs throughout the region.

“It is an exciting time for tourism in Somerset with the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail now completed which is Australia’s longest recreational rail trail as well as our many other attractions on offer in our beautiful part of the world.

“Now is the perfect time for more volunteers to join the team and help boost support for growing visitor numbers to the region.”

Council is looking for friendly customer service focused volunteers who are passionate about the region.

Various days and shifts are available across our information centres. Opportunities exist at the Somerset Regional Art Gallery – The Condensery and Toogoolawah Visitor Information Centre, the Kilcoy Visitor Information Centre, Esk Visitor Information Centre and Fernvale Visitor Information Centre.  

Application packages are available from any of our facilities, Council offices or Council’s website:
