Join the FRIENDS old

Become a member and help our Gardens grow

‘FRIENDS’ membership is very important!  Your involvement will not only help us to provide vital support for the maintenance of our beautiful Gardens, but it also will allow us to expand community participation in both educational and entertainment events at the Noosa Botanic Gardens.

Individual Membership is open to everyone including visitors who would like to support the Noosa Botanic Gardens. You do not need to be a gardener to become involved in FRIENDS activities.

Volunteering (being a member) is a wonderful way to ‘give back to the community’ but it is also a clever way to enhance your resume/CV. It can directly lead to improved job opportunities.

  • Volunteering at the Noosa Botanic Gardens shows you have a passion and keen interest in horticulture – something an employer would be looking for.
  • Volunteering shows your commitment to the community. You are actually doing something, not just saying you will do it!
  • Volunteering opens up a network of new contacts that can lead to new job avenues.
  • Volunteers have been snapped up by local businesses as they can see the passion these people have for the Gardens, and those employers desire that attitude to be part of their business.
  • You learn skills and knowledge from other volunteers that are not taught at school or TAFE.
