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: Built in 1870, this cottage of the mine settlement is typically Cousin Jack. The National Trust has furnished cottage to the pre 1900 period. The characteristic picket fence encloses a picturesque heritage garden that has been recreated in the style of gardens established by mining families.
