South West

2017 Dates

Block A 


Block B


Block C



The South-West has been inhabited annually by the Red Frog Crew since 2001. The little tourist town of Dunsborough and the surrounding areas have become a popular hotspot for Leavers and Chaplains alike. The South-West is quite unique as it is a large geographical area with Leavers accommodated in Caravan Parks, Motels, Backpackers and private accommodation houses scattered throughout the area. It is encompassed by a vast expanse of beautiful beaches on one side, chocolate, cheese and ice-cream factories on the other, and fabulous coffee shops and designer stores in between. 

If you have a heart for this generation, you are looking to build long-term friendships with Leavers and Froggers, you are a team player and willing to serve in any volunteer area, then the South-West is the perfect place for you and we would love to have you on board.

In the South-West, Red Frog volunteers cook pancake breakfasts and host BBQ's, clean rooms, hang out with Leavers and help in situations that require mediation and referral. Also in the South-West is the iconic Leavers Zone and the ever popular Red Frog Stage.

Leavers Chaplains

Leavers Chaplains are the core of our Leavers response. As a chaplain you will be part of a team of 4 to 5 crew members responsible for a house, building or campsite 24/7. This is your opportunity to build relationships with the Leavers by being available to them in their accommodation, on the streets or in the Leavers 'Zone'. Each team has a team leader as well as a strong network of pastoral carers and location leaders, ensuring you are valued and supported day and night. Being a Leavers Chaplain is a full time commitment for your selected date block.

Support Crew

Enabling Red Frogs to operate during the duration of Leavers requires a huge amount of resources constantly being set up and moving. If you have an available van or ute, like lifting and helping in setting-up for Leavers or even doing VIP shuttle runs, then this is role for you! 

Entertainment Crew

DJ’s, dancers, & Die hard party goers apply here. Red Frogs entertainment stages are the most popular form of Leavers entertainment. If you’ve got energy, and the skills to match, then this is the role for you.

Red Frog Hotline Crew

The Red Frog call centre is the hub of the Red Frog movements around Australia, receiving record numbers of calls for anything from random acts of pancakes to more serious issues requiring immediate response.  Call centre volunteers are rostered on day, night and late night shifts. As a legend of the phone you are part of a team of people who will direct the movements of the hotel chaplains, allowing them to make maximum impact in supporting Leavers.  

RF Creative Crew 

Whether you’re handy with a camera, have a director’s cap or just love telling a great story - we need you. All over the country Red Frog workers and teams put themselves on the front line of the biggest party of the year. As RF Creative we get the privilege of capturing the incredible behind-the-scenes moments and stories as our crew safeguard a generation - if this is up your ally we would love for you to join us.
