The National Trust of South Australia was first incorporated in 1955 to protect and conserve natural and built places of heritage significance. Today the National Trust of South Australia continues to make a difference to the preservation and promotion of South Australia’s natural and built heritage. In everything we do we aim to demonstrate the relevance of heritage, both natural and cultural, to our lifestyle, our economy and our communities.

Keep Ayers House for the people

The National Trust of South Australia has managed the Ayers House Museum on North Terrace in Adelaide on behalf of the Government of South Australia since 1973, having saved the building from demolition in the 1960s. On 10 June 2021, the National Trust was served a 30 day eviction notice by the Government of South Australia.
