Moonta Mines Model School Museum – 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: Moonta Mines Museum houses thematic displays on the Cornish miners. There are also extensive displays of costume, china, silverware, photographs, memorabilia and a classroom furnished in c.1900. Take a 50 minute round trip by narrow gauge rail passing the reservoir and ore sorting floors, then through a tunnel in Ryans Tailings Heap.
