Government House/La Trobe’s 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: One of Victoria’s oldest buildings, La Trobe’s Cottage was the home of Victoria’s first Governor, Lt Charles La Trobe. A prefabricated dwelling brought to Australia from England in 1839, it still contains many of its original furnishings. It is listed as a protected property by the National Trust of Victoria.
