The Volunteer Cruise Ship Ambassadors are a group of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about promoting the Whitsundays coordinated through Tourism Whitsundays.

The Volunteer Cruise Ship Ambassadors Program was established in 2004 as an initiative of the Airlie Beach Chamber of Commerce. Judi and Keith Dunn established and managed the program for the first 10 years. Five years ago, Brian Richardson took the reins. Recently the program has come to sit under the umbrella of Tourism Whitsundays.

Meeting every cruise ship that anchors in the Whitsundays, they are at the forefront of welcoming passengers, providing maps, answering questions and much more.

The volunteer program started with only 5 ships in 2004, this number has grown by well over 1,200% to welcoming 60 in 2019. The group of loyal Volunteer Cruise Ship Ambassadors have been there every step of the way ensuring our visiting cruise ship guests get a warm welcome and a wealth of local knowledge.
