Are you fired up for three days of high-octane automotive awesomeness over the 2021 Easter weekend?

Rockhampton’s city streets will take centre stage for a revving-good time at the inaugural Rockynats car festival.

Advance Rockhampton’s Manager of Tourism and Events Annette Pearce said volunteering at Rockynats is a unique opportunity.

Volunteers will be involved in the event from start to finish providing much needed assistance to the event team, engaging with the local community and visitors, as well as meeting new people.

Volunteer positions include:

  • Greeters
  • Accessibility Services
  • Media Centre
  • Ticketing and Information Services
  • Transport Services
  • Platinum Guest Services
