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.

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: The police station was constructed in 1886 when Borroloola was a significant river port and drovers’ camp. The buildings were used for 50 years by the police before becoming a patrol officer’s residence. It is the oldest surviving example of an outpost station in the Northern Territory.
