Welcome to the National Trust Tasmania

The National Trust’s historic properties provide the key to exploring Tasmania’s story and rich heritage of architecture, interiors, collections and gardens.

The National Trust is Australia’s leading charity that advocates for the built environment. The Tasmanian Branch of the Trust was formed in 1960 and is represented by eleven historic properties across Tasmania’s three regions. The Trust also runs conservation appeals for more than twenty properties in community ownership.

A leading advocate for Tasmania’s heritage, The Trust’s advocacy endeavors encompasses individual buildings, historic towns, industrial heritage and natural heritage.

The Trust’s heritage lists became the basis for the Commonwealth Government’s Register of the National Estate (1975+) and the Tasmanian Heritage Register (1995+)

Today our grand buildings and beautifully well-maintained grounds are popular venues for weddings and other special occasions, and we have a full calendar of exciting events to attend year round.

Visit us and discover the unique stories that each of these fantastic properties has to offer.
