The National Trust of Australia (Queensland) is a community organisation which supports lifelong learning

Queensland makes available to the public, students and teachers a range of experiences related to the heritage of our state and nation.

National Trust of Australia (Queensland) owns and manages 12 heritage properties, most of which are open to the public and some of which have programs which assist in the delivery of learning based on the Australian Curriculum.

Australian Curriculum subjects include; Humanities, Social Sciences and Science with the subject areas of History and Geography.

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Education Department welcomes over 20,000 students each year, the majority of primary school age.

National Trust of Australia (Queensland) publishes brochures, booklets and books about heritage-related topics and issues.  We organise the annual Heritage Festival. Each year over fifty entries of displays, talks, tours and concerts and open days are held.

Bus tours which visit heritage places, some not normally open to the public, are arranged regularly.
