Wanslea – 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: A red brick purpose built orphanage, Wanslea (c1905) has always been associated with the care of others. It was constructed by the instruction of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (a benevolent society) and requisitioned by the Red Cross WW2 for convalescing servicemen, after which it returned to being used for the care of children. Today, community based organisations occupy the property.
