Rippon Lea Estate – 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: Located just 20 minutes from Melbourne’s Central Business District, this historic property is one of the great private estates of early Victoria. The spacious mansion is a “must-see” and the garden is of international significance, boasting a lake, islands, bridges, grotto and windmill and a grand Victorian fernery.
