Ellensbrook – 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: It is entirely fitting that Ellensbrook is named after a woman. Built over many decades from the 1850s by ticket-of-leave convicts, deserting seamen and local Nyoongars, the property was largely managed in turn by Ellen Bussell and two of her five daughters, Fanny and Edith, as a farm, home for Aboriginal children and guesthouse.
