Redruth Gaol – 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: Redruth Gaol was erected in 1856 and was the first gaol in South Australia outside of Adelaide. The Gaol was closed in 1894 and prisoners transferred to Gladstone Gaol. In 1897, the Gaol was restored and reopened as a Girls Reformatory but closed in 1922. The Gaol is famous for the filming of the 1979 movie “Breaker Morant” and is protected by the National Trust.
