Archive records reveal a history of the community movement to preserve significant places for all Australians.
The Trust Archive is the repository for the records of the National Trust of Australia (NSW). Established in 1945 and the first National Trust in Australia, it has been a leading organisation in the conservation movement in New South Wales. Archive records reveal a history of the community movement to preserve significant places for all Australians. Battles fought and work undertaken to save individual buildings, landscapes, cemeteries, and industrial and move-able heritage items in New South Wales can be seen in records, images and Trust publications.
Archive records of Trust managed properties contain comprehensive histories of each of these significant properties as well as the conservation, interpretation and collection management of them by The Trust.
