Franklin House – 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: A charming Georgian house built in 1838 for Mr Britton Jones. Authentically furnished during 2004, in 1842 it became the WK Hawkes School for Boys. An outstanding feature of the interior is the woodwork, all from NSW cedar and it is listed as a protected property by the National Trust of Tasmania.
