Riversdale is a state significant 19th century colonial house, surrounded by picturesque gardens, owned and managed by the National Trust (NSW). It has a vibrant history as a boarding house, an inn and home to the District Surveyors General.

The Property Coordinator at Riversdale is responsible for managing the administrative tasks at the property, maintaining security, and assisting with public programming and events to attract both domestic and international tourists, and venue hire for businesses, weddings and community events.
