The Port of Adelaide Branch of the National Trust of South Australia (PoANT) was formed in October 2006 as a response to the community’s growing concerns regarding the rapid changes that were underway in Port Adelaide and on the LeFevre Peninsula. The branch became the 49th branch in this state.
During the months of planning before the General Meeting, many people joined the National Trust of SA [NTSA] and indicated that
they wanted to affiliate with the Port of Adelaide Branch.
Even before our first General Meeting, the branch had already attracted the largest membership of the 49 branches throughout South Australia and one of the largest memberships in the country. Unlike the majority of the other branches, which look after buildings and collections, we have chosen to be purely an advocacy branch, providing our members with opportunities to relay their heritage aspirations and concerns to all levels of government, to business and to the community.
The Branch continues to attract members and currently there are 100+ members.
