Polly Woodside Maritime Precinct – 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: Come aboard a ‘true Cape Horner’ and discover life aboard Melbourne’s favourite tall ship. Described as ‘the prettiest barque ever built in Belfast’ the Polly Woodside is moored in the original Duke & Orr dry dock opposite the Melbourne Convention Centre at Southbank. The Polly Woodside Maritime Precinct tells the story of the ship and the hardships and tales of the mariners who sailed her.
