The National Trust (NSW) advocates for the protection of New South Wales’ built, natural and cultural heritage to ensure its preservation for future generations. Our branches and committees provide members with the opportunity to connect locally and regionally through events, tours, and advocacy for the protection of heritage.

Make a difference by joining a branch

The National Trust’s community of volunteers makes a difference through our various branches and committees, providing an invaluable contribution by caring for our properties, supporting our fundraising initiatives and volunteering for various roles.

The National Trust is supported by 26 regional branches and committees, which provide advocacy and fundraising support for the organisation in regional areas and at our properties.
