Newcastle Now welcomes volunteers and has opportunities available for locals wishing to contribute to our strategic vision of creating a vibrant city centre where businesses are successful and residents, workers and visitors enjoy a unique lifestyle. Our volunteers are a highly valued support team, not only do they perform a valuable service but they also have a lot of fun while they work.  Many firm friendships have grown from their collaborative efforts to revitalise our city.

City Ambassador Program

Many of our volunteers choose to work as City Ambassadors (or guides) who provide a friendly and welcoming roving information service, for visitors and residents in Newcastle city centre. They offer:

  • Information and assistance to locals, visitors and tourists regarding activities, services and events.
  • Directions to streets, shops, buildings, transport and public services.
  • Information about cultural, community, social and recreational events in Newcastle.

These services have been extremely well received, with both visitors and residents alike expressing nothing but praise for the men and women who make up our band of volunteers and the contribution that they make.

Volunteer at Nobbys Lighthouse

Newcastle Now currently leases the Nobbys Lighthouse site from the NSW State Government and opens the grounds to the public every Sunday from 10am-4pm. We also open the site when cruise ships are in port for the day, giving passengers the opportunity to visit this iconic landmark. Many of our volunteers choose to work at the Lighthouse where they act as information guides, supervise and carry out light maintenance duties. If you see one of our volunteers at work, please remember to say 'hello' and thank them for their contribution.
