About Willowgate

Based in the centre of Perth, Willowgate is a charity which offers a whole range of different activities to a big slice of our community. No two days are the same, and we have some of the most loyal and friendly customers an organisation could ask for. That paired with a great team who are fun, hardworking and inclusive makes us think it’s a pretty good place to work! Like most outdoor centres, summer is our busiest time, so we need a few more team members to get us through the busiest bits. In summer our busiest activities are paddlesport taster experiences and our kids activity days, this is what we’ll need the most help with.
