Mount Gambier Courthouse 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: Work began on the pink dolomite stone courthouse in 1864. Now a National Trust property, there have been a number of additions to the building, including: a fence erected in 1869; a verandah constructed in 1871; a new wing in 1878; and gas lighting which replaced kerosene lamps in 1892.
