Working Bees

Can you spare time once a month to help preserve a priceless piece of Australian Heritage? A working bee is held at Rose Cottage, Rose Street, Wilberforce, from 10am on the third Saturday of each month - and help is always appreciated.  A little help goes a long way. Make it a point to watch our Calendar, Facebook pages or Twitter feed for news about any changes of time.

Become A Volunteer

Do you have a Sunday free each month and would you like to help the public enjoy visits to Rose Cottage?

It is a great way to learn more of the history of the cottage: meet people: and help a small number of volunteers.

If you are able to assist, please contact our Cottage Manager  John Nichols on 02 9602 3330
