Penghana 1898 – 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: An impressive house and grounds dramatically sited overlooking Queenstown. Penghana was the home of the first mine manager of the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company who developed the company into the largest early 20th C industrial enterprise in Tasmania. This splendid Federation style house has been home to 13 more mine managers subsequently and is now used for accommodation and dining.
