The National Trust (NSW) is part of a global movement of people dedicated to heritage. As a united organisation of loyal members, dedicated volunteers, staff, branches and committees, we advocate for the protection of New South Wales’ built, natural and cultural heritage to ensure its preservation for future generations.
National Trust (NSW) branches and committees provide our Members the opportunity to connect locally and regionally through local events, tours, and local advocacy for the protection of heritage in local regions.

Make a Difference by Joining a Branch 

The National Trust (NSW) community of volunteers make 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 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.
