Ellensbrook relaunch project needs heritage volunteers

Ellensbrook has played a pivotal role in the development of both farming and tourism in the region and Mokidup is a site of particular significance to the Wadandi people. 

Ellensbrook will be relaunched at the end of November and the National Trust wants to recruit volunteers to help present this important site as a major heritage tourism offering in the Margaret River region.

A grant from Lotterywest has enabled the National Trust to undertake extensive conservation and interpretation works over the past 18 months to improve the visitor experience as well as care for the homestead and other infrastructure.

The Trust has worked with local community members, including traditional owners, to tell important stories of this place reaching back thousands of years.

The National Trust is looking for people interested in sharing this fascinating history with visitors, or those wishing to contribute to the care of the landscape and grounds.

There are two opportunities to join the group information sessions - Thursday 9 August at 5.30pm or Friday 10th August at 10.00 am.

Both sessions will be held in Room C1 at the Margaret River Education Campus (follow the National Trust signs)
