The Hermitage – 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: This unique Arts and Crafts inspired cottage was designed by prominent ecclesiastical Priest and Architect John Cyril Hawes. Originally intended to serve as the residence for the Chaplain of the nearby hospital, it was home for nurses from the 1950s. It has always been a challenging place to live in as it lacks a kitchen and laundry. It is currently a private residence, view externally only.
