Branches


National Trust in Queensland has a series of  branch committees that support the community on local advocacy, host educational talks, organise social events, sell National Trust memberships in their region and promote and fundraise for the work of the National Trust throughout Queensland.

It’s a great way to get more involved in your local community. If you are interested in joining one of our existing branches or creating a new branch, first you have to become an active member, then contact us on membership@nationaltrustqld.org to be connected with your local branch President or relevant contact.

Our branch committees include:
