Use a National Trust Membership to see more of the world

If you’re planning a trip overseas, a National Trust of Australia (Victoria) membership can give you access to over 1,000 extraordinary heritage places globally.

Use your membership card to visit International National Trusts Organisation (INTO) places around the world.

We’ve listed them below so you can start planning your trip. Please check the local visiting arrangements and admission information by visiting the website of participating trusts.

*Free entry is not valid at some sites and excludes special exhibitions and guided tours. We recommend that you contact the property before attending to confirm that free entry for National Trust members is applicable.


How does it work?

The National Trust of Australia (Victoria) is part of a network of over 80 heritage organisations around the world, which are represented by the International National Trusts Organisation (INTO).

Thanks to this worldwide heritage family, you can use your National Trust of Australia (Victoria) membership to get free or discounted access to over 1,000 places in many countries, from England and Scotland, to Canada and the Cayman Islands.

Why add heritage to your travel agenda?

INTO organisations are responsible for looking after special places that are rich with natural and cultural heritage. You’ll get a unique glimpse into a country’s history, and be able to enjoy a huge range of experiences and locations.

For example, the global National Trust experience could take in the last remaining sugar mill in Barbados; the Olivetti shop in Venice; the largest working waterwheel in the world in Isle of Man; Beatrix Potter’s famous home in the UK’s Lake District; Scotland’s 16th century icon, Crathes Castle; and many more.

Using your membership on your holiday means you’ll see some of the most impressive historic buildings, castles, gardens, estates, forests and beaches, that a country has to offer. It’s also a great way to support the conservation of local culture and nature.

How do you use your membership overseas?

Simply show your current National Trust of Australia (Victoria) membership card at any participating INTO site and you will receive free or discounted entry.

Some sites may not be completely free, and could exclude discounted access to special exhibitions and guided tours. If you’re planning a trip and want to make the most of your membership card, it’s always worth contacting the destination in advance to confirm that free entry for National Trust members is applicable.

You can also check the local visiting arrangements and admission information by visiting the website of participating National Trusts.
