If you want to explore new places, expand your skills, or simply meet new people, volunteering at the National Trust (NSW) is a great opportunity to make a real difference.

Every year, over 1,200 volunteers donate their time to help care for our places and share unique stories of heritage with the community.

This incredible contribution goes a long way towards protecting beautiful and iconic places across New South Wales. And with 21 houses, gardens and galleries to choose from, there’s always a wide range of opportunities on offer for volunteers.

 All volunteer roles are flexible and work around your interests, skills and availability. You can volunteer a few hours a week, or more depending on your circumstances. We provide full training for roles when required, and as a volunteer you’ll receive free access to all National Trust properties in New South Wales. You also receive an Associate Membership to the National Trust once you volunteer 96 hours over a 12-month period.

Whether you want to volunteer in our gardens, help out with house tours, or lend a hand in our archives, we’ll provide the support and training to make the most of your volunteering experience.
