The Australian National Trust movement was formed in Sydney in 1945. It now extends throughout all states and territories, and is Australia’s largest independent conservation movement. We are the only Australian conservation organisation which cares for the built, cultural and natural heritage of Australia; through advocacy, conservation and educational programmes for people of all ages.
Even more importantly, as a community-based charity independent of government and corporate pressures, we are Australia’s strongest voice for the protection of heritage of all kinds. Backed by advice from Australia’s leading heritage professionals, supported by contributions from business and the community – and with a membership of 22,000 in New South Wales alone, our voice counts!
