Caretaker (voluntary position)

Museums & Heritage Regular - more than 6 months Katherine NT

About this opportunity

Volunteers play an important role at the National Trust. Our volunteers bring a wide range of skills and experience and help to enhance visitor experience at our historic properties throughout the Northern Territory.

We are currently looking for a caretaker for O'Keeffe House in Katherine, for an immediate start. This exciting opportunity will allow a person (or couple) with a caravan to become the caretaker of this historical site on the banks of the Katherine river. The caretaker will have their power and water paid for, in exchange for upkeep of the gardens and opening the house to visitors. No previous experience in a caretaker role is required, just enthusiasm!

If you are interested in heritage, giving back to the community, and spending some time in a beautiful and unique location, we would love to hear from you.

Additional requirements

Your safety and wellbeing is your priority. Familiarise yourself with the most up-to-date requirements and advice from the Australian and NT and SA State Governments.
* As each organisation provides different levels/types of insurance, volunteers are reminded to check with the organisation as to the type of insurance provided for volunteers (e.g. Volunteer Personal Accident Insurance).
* Best practice volunteer involvement recommends that a volunteer role should not be more than 15-16 hours per week.
