Old Umbrella Shop – 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: Constructed in the 1860s in a transitional early Victorian style and built entirely of Tasmanian Blackwood, the Shop is the last genuine period shop in Tasmania. Umbrellas were manufactured and sold at the shop from the turn of the century. Umbrellas used during the last 100 years are on display in this protected National Trust property.
