Heritage Places

The mission of the National Trust is to conserve and interpret Australia’s heritage (historic, natural and Indigenous) for present and future generations. One way we do this is by looking after heritage places which range from old gaols, schools, government buildings, residences, industrial buildings, pump houses, mills and reserves. In this section, you can search for heritage places which are either owned by the National Trust as well as historic properties which are open to the public by historical societies, museums, retail outlets and tourism agencies.

Members of the National Trust receive free or discounted entry to Trust properties in Australia and overseas.
