National Trust of South Australia
The National Trust of South Australia is a community-based, non-government organisation, committed to promoting and conserving South Australia’s indigenous, natural, built and cultural heritage through custodianship of heritage places and objects, and through advocacy.
The Port of Adelaide Branch of the National Trust works within the aims
of the National Trust of South Australia [NTSA]. The ‘National Trust of South Australia Act 1955 – 1975’ section 5 states that:
The National Trust is established for the purposes of promoting:
(a) the preservation and maintenance for the benefit of the people of South Australia of lands and buildings of beauty or historic, scientific, artistic, or architectural interest and, as regards lands, the preservation
[so far as practicable] of their natural aspect features and animal and plant life;
(b) the protection and augmentation of the amenities of such lands and buildings and their surroundings;
(c) the preservation of furniture and pictures and chattels of national, historic, artistic or scientific interest;
(d) the access to and enjoyment of such lands, buildings, and chattels by the public.
In our PoANT advocacy for local heritage, it has already proven helpful to have the backing and the assistance of the State Office of NTSA, which is also able to, on behalf of local branches, take matters of national concern to the national body.
