A message to members

The National Trust of Australia (Victoria) is deeply saddened by the significant loss of life, hardship for many individuals and communities, and impact to our natural and cultural heritage during this time of crisis, and continues to monitor the bushfire activity in the State.

We are fortunate that no National Trust properties have been lost or damaged at this stage, but our thoughts are with our members, staff, volunteers, and communities across Australia who are affected by these events.

The National Trust extends its sincere gratitude for the outstanding work of the Fire Authorities, State Emergency Services, volunteers, animal welfare and the many community groups who remain on the front line. We thank them for their dedicated and ongoing efforts, and look forward to working in collaboration with other organisations in the future to provide assistance in repairing and strengthening our State and our people.
