Penneshaw Maritime and Folk 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: Built in 1921, and previously known as the Hog Bay School, it has the longest continuous history of any school on the Island. The Maritime Room commemorates navigators Matthew Flinders and Nicolas Baudin and the seamen, whalers and sealers who visited and settled in this locality.
