IF you’ve ever wanted to catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of one of outback Queensland’s biggest weekends – here’s your chance.
North West are being offered the chance to help out at this year’s Julia Creek Dirt n Dust Festival, with the call for volunteers today now in full swing.
The Dirt n Dust Festival on April 17 to 19, hosts a range of events including the Julia Creek Cannington Dirt n Dust Triathlon, PBR Bullride, the BHP Billiton Artesian Express, nights of entertainment, bog snorkelling, and the annual Australia’s Best Butt competition.
Event manager Sam Kimlin says volunteers are required to work in all areas of the festival, and the experience of working on such an iconic event is unforgettable.
“The Dirt n Dust Festival is known Australia-wide as one of the toughest events and best weekends there is, but the reputation couldn’t be earned without the large, dedicated group of volunteers who attend every year,” Ms Kimlin said.
“We’re very fortunate that with such an action-packed program there are opportunities to suit volunteers of all skills and interests; be it hosting visitors in our camp grounds, working backstage with the entertainment, marshalling the junior triathlon, welcoming people at the gates and much more.
“It’s an excellent way to pick up some new skills and make some life-long friends in the process,” said Ms Kimlin.
About 100 volunteers are needed to help across the Dirt n Dust weekend.
