National Trust of Australia (Victoria)

National TrustThe National Trust is a unique worldwide organisation that is ‘apolitical’ and primarily funded by its members.

It speaks out and campaigns for the protection of our heritage; it manages and opens the doors of many significant historic properties and gardens across Victoria.

It preserves and presents some of Victoria’s finest collections. In many of its buildings and gardens, it arranges concerts, seminars, walks, exhibitions, and readings for the delight and benefit of all.

Ranging from pioneer farms to grand Victorian mansions to early settlers homes, National Trust properties, which are scattered throughout metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria, provides visitors with the opportunity to learn and experience Victoria’s past.
