Motts 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 the earliest surviving buildings in the region, the original two room wooden cottage dates from the 1840s. The unusual two storey stone section with its Gothic styling was completed around 1851 and is now listed as a protected property by the National Trust of Victoria.
