The Stella James 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: In 1933 Estelle James and Clare Stevenson, flat dwellers from the Eastern Suburbs, commissioned Walter Burley Griffin to design this small cottage as their weekend retreat. Deceptively simple, the house is a masterful expression of Griffin’s design philosophy. The house is essential viewing for devotees of organic architecture.
