Barwon Grange – 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: Geelong’s only surviving 1850s riverside house in original condition inside and out. Barwon Grange was built for businessman Jonathan Porter O’Brien. Rooms are displayed in the way in which they were first used, faithfully representing an 1856 inventory. The picturesque garden slopes down towards the Barwon River.
