Caring for the place

The National Trust of Australia (WA)The house is much as it was when John Curtin died, except for later verandah enclosures which extended the dining room and joined the main bedroom to the sleep-out. Joinery, ventilators, ceiling treatments and light fittings, most of them of the pre-war period, are unchanged.

The National Trust is committed to sustainable management of its properties. It limits public access to the Curtin Family Home to an annual season of open days and small scale events that do not affect its conservation. At other times of the year the house is set up to accommodate visiting scholars, writers and artists or, for payment of a rental fee, other people who are interested in the significance of the place.

The Curtin Family Home web site provides virtual access and over time will develop a range of stimulating educational activities for a wide audience.
