Rosella House – 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: Rosella House (c1911) was built at the turn of the century as a hospital at the request of Mr William Burges. It is supposed that he named it Rosella as a combination of the names of his wife and daughter. After changing hands several times the hospital became part of the Geraldton District Hospital until 1967, when it became a boarding house. Today it is used as a rehabilitation hostel.
