Penitentiary Chapel Historic Site – 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: Construction began in 1831, to the design of famous colonial architect John Lee Archer, as the Chapel for the adjacent Prisoner’s Barracks. It is open daily and listed as a protected property by the National Trust of Tasmania.
