Tenterfield School of Arts – 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: On 24 October, 1889 Sir Henry Parkes delivered his Tenterfield Oration at a banquet at the School of Arts. His speech revived the federation movement and led to the creation of the Australian nation. Stunningly restored for the Centenary of Federation the School of Arts houses a museum devoted to Federation, the life of Sir Henry Parkes and the town of Tenterfield.
