East Perth Cemeteries – 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: From the establishment of the first cemetery in 1829 to the closure of the seven cemeteries in 1899 almost all of the people, who died in Perth, from the wealthy and prominent to the poor or unknown, were buried at East Perth. The remaining headstones tell of bravery, tragedy, illness and accident; of success and suffering and are preserved by the National Trust.
