Frequently Asked Questions

If you wish to nominate a place to our Heritage Register, please contact one of our Community Advocates on 03 9656 9818 or at conservation@nattrust.com.au. The classification process involves rigorous assessment by the National Trust’s expert committees, followed by ratification by the National Trust Board. As such, the classification process can take some months. If you’re worried about a place that’s under threat, please get in touch with our team to discuss the most effective way to protect it.
