Volunteer with
Australian Volunteer Coast Guard

Joining the Coast Guard is a great way to learn new skills, get out on the water, make new friends and serve your community. It can be a welcome change from your normal life and extremely rewarding.

Assisting in search and rescue, emergency responses with the police, ambulance, joint operations, marine assist and public awareness are just a few of the jobs we do every day.

The Australia Coast Guard is made of volunteers from all stages and walks of life, just like you. Many of them have no prior experience with boating or search and rescue.

The Coast Guard can provide you with all the training you need and the opportunity to be part of a great organisation.

As a national organisation with hundreds of members, we have many roles available for people to be part of. There are always new opportunities to take on new roles and try new things.

Some of our roles are:

  • Rescue Boat Crew
  • Marine Radio Operators
  • Education
  • Administration
  • Maintenance Team
  • Fund Raising
  • Public Relations
  • Human resources
  • And more

Information days are held regularly. If you like to be part of the team, please fill in the form or contact your local flotilla.
