Área de descripción


National Trust of Australia (Northern Territory) is a community-based organisation with a charter to promote the preservation and awareness of the heritage of the Northern Territory.

The most important objective of the National Trust is to promote the preservation of our heritage in whatever form that takes – buildings, places of historic, social, scientific or aesthetic significance or more intangible cultural heritage.

The Trust in the Northern Territory maintains a property portfolio of nineteen historic buildings, several of which are open to the public. Some properties feature interpretive displays drawing on the history and setting of the sites. Other properties are leased and only open to the public on special occasions.

Through branches in Darwin, Katherine, Borroloola, and Alice Springs as well as a presence in Timber Creek, Tennant Creek and Pine Creek, the National Trust reaches out into the community and monitors heritage issues throughout the Territory. Community involvement in its work is highly valued.

One of the ongoing major tasks of the National Trust is to act as an advocate for conservation and to lobby governments in matters of cultural heritage, legislation and conservation.

The Hartley Street School Museum, restored in 1980, is now the centre for heritage in Alice Springs.
