Like all heritage and tourist railway operations, the Redwater Creek Steam and Heritage Society is totally dependent on the marvellous contribution of volunteers. From the planning committee to the gardeners & grant writers; from station masters & train drivers to ticket sellers, gatekeepers & restorers & maintainers of equipment or parking attendants, EVERYTHING relies on volunteers!
Volunteers are always needed when the train runs on the first full weekend of each month, during the special January running and , of course, at SteamFest. But we also need people during the year to help us to keep the grounds in check and other maintenance tasks.
The Redwater Creek Steam and Heritage Society may be able to provide you with work that will help you meet Centrelink requirements. Get in touch with us for more information.
