The Australian Henley Regatta is run entirely by volunteers. You can be part of this exciting event by either joining the committee or by volunteering on Henley day. The benefits of volunteering are wide-ranging. The Australian Henley Regatta is the only regatta on the Yarra which is not organized by a club and is open to any rowing club member or supporter.The committee is currently looking for new members. We meet once a month throughout the year to plan for the next regatta.


Over 30 people volunteer at the regatta each year to make the Australian Henley a successful event. Many of our event staff return year after year. For the 2020 regatta, we are looking for people to fill the following roles:

  • Bow numbers

  • Runners

  • Buoying

  • Trailer Parking

  • Photography

Regatta staff will receive:

  • Regatta T-shirt

  • Invitation to attend the Rowing Victoria/MARA Marquee on the Henley Landing

  • The experience of volunteering at a regatta

  • Morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and water
