Heritage Conservation


Heritage reflects our culture and history.  All heritage properties and historical buildings in communities have important stories to tell. 

In Queensland, the advocacy team of National Trust is committed to assisting residents, communities and developers to ensure building conservation works are managed with great historic integrity to ensure significant places are retained for generations to come.

Heritage conservation is the process of looking after historical sites, and it is a fundamental part of the National Trust’s role.  We are the proud custodians of many historic places and these places are an important part of our education programs. Visiting heritage places and historical landmarks gives you a perspective on life as it would have been in years gone by, giving us an appreciation of the struggles and challenges they faced in the past and the diversity of shared histories that helped shape our nation.  

Built heritage helps develop a deep understanding of identity and place through unique architecture in Queensland's city and towns. Nothing is more iconic than the quintessential Queenslander home, much loved by people across the state.
