Herdsman Lake Settler 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: This simple jarrah weatherboard dwelling represents the last of forty cottages of the 1930 government subdivision that attempted to provide affordable agricultural land close to Perth. Simple in plan, with four interconnecting rooms and a verandah front and back, it was the most economical cottage design available, and was considered to provide a good basic level of accommodation.
