Woodford Academy – 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: Built as an inn during the 1840s, it was later used by Alfred Fairfax as a mountain retreat and then a guest house. In 1906 John McManamey opened a boys school here, the Woodford Academy. This fascinating complex of buildings contains features reflecting every period of its long history.
