Holdfast Shores Sail Mast – 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: Soon after the arrival of Governor Hindmarsh aboard HMAS Buffalo (1836) a flagstaff was erected on the first ridge of sand-hills south of the Patawalonga mouth to signify the command post of the new British province, later colony, of South Australia. In 1839, a Signal Mast was erected near this site on the second sand-hill from the sea at the end of Adelaide Road.
