The National Trust works to preserve and promote Australia’s indigenous, environmental, and built heritage and culture.

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: The CSIRO field station operated between 1935 and 1976, and was the site of research on pasture trace minerals deficiency in the diet of local sheep. In 1956 abnormal levels of radioactive iodine were identified in sheep, and this was attributed to the fallout from tests at Maralinga.
