Avondale – 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: Avondale was an early pastoral property established in the 1830s. In 1936, the farm became a government research station for the development of grain varieties, animal husbandry and sustainable farming techniques. Dr Harold Bennets used the research station to develop a vaccine for the braxy-like disease in sheep. The farm has living heritage, with farm machinery, land care centre and animal nursery.
