The gardening team manage and care for the beautiful cottage garden that has been restored to it’s 1800’s counterpart. We encourage people of all ages and skill levels who wish to get involved with their community to join us at Gulf Station Homestead.
We need volunteers to introduce the public to Gulf Station and assist them with any questions. You would be the first point of call for the public and an asset to the volunteer guiding team.
Established in the 1850s, Gulf Station was farmed for nearly 100 years by the Bell family. Scottish settlers Agnes and William Bell were the first to lease the land where the property was established. The National Trust acquired stewardship of the property in 1976 and restored its buildings and cottage garden. Gulf Station hosts regular events and activities including Heritage Festivals, Talks, Workshops and Lost Tradition Days where you can see working horses, sheep being sheared, butter being made in traditional churns and wood being worked without using power tools.
