Burra Police Lock-up and Stables – 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: Erected at the rear of the first police station in 1847, the cells were used as a temporary Gaol until Redruth Gaol was built in 1856 with additional cells, stables and yard added in 1873. Dedicated to the National Trust in 1976, it is part of the Burra Heritage Trail.
