Coromandel Valley & Districts Branch National Trust SA

Coromandel Valley & Districts Branch National Trust SA (CVDNT) holds a wealth of information about the history of Coromandel Valley and surrounding districts including Aberfoyle Park, Belair, Blackwood, Cherry Gardens, Flagstaff Hill, Glenalta and Hawthorndene.

Thanks to the enthusiasm of our members and volunteers, CVDNT organises a wide range of activities, events and displays across the year.

Sharing the stories of our area is at the heart of what we do and this website is our latest tool for information sharing.

CVDNT continues to receive significant items and information into its care. Historic records are available for research purposes at the Watchman House, while collectibles are displayed in Winns Bakehouse Museum and Gamble Cottage.
