Ahimsa – National Trust Property

Help the National Trust protect our heritage by undertaking a regular volunteer commitment!

The National Trust works to preserve and promote Australia’s indigenous, environmental, and built heritage and culture.

A huge number of positions are available across the state varying from front of house, food service and clerical roles to guiding, research, promotions and fundraising.

Volunteering at the National Trust is a fantastic way to meet new people, develop new skills and contribute to the history of your local community.

About this site: This bushland estate was created in the 1930s by Marie Byles the noted feminist and conservationist. A devout Buddhist, the property includes her meditation hut. In accordance with Miss Byles’ wishes the bush reserve and the Hut of Happy Omens are open during daylight hours to all who respect the Hindu virtue of ahimsa, which is to abstain from causing hurt and harm.
