Experiment Farm Cottage – 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: Experiment Farm Cottage is built on the site of Australia’s first land grant. Experience the story of ex-convict James Ruse who demonstrated the fledging colony of NSW could feed itself; and of pioneer John Harris – surgeon, explorer, farmer, magistrate and merchant, who built the charming 1830’s Indian bungalow which is once again filled with simple but elegant colonial furniture.
