The National Trust of Australia (Queensland) [NTAQ] is a membership-based community organisation working to promote the natural, Indigenous and cultural heritage of our state.
On 16 October, 1963, the Honourable Harold Richter, Minister for Local Government and Conservation, introduced the National Trust of Queensland Bill into parliament. On 9 December, 1963, The National Trust of Queensland Act received the Royal Assent, one day before the 104th anniversary of the reading of the proclamation establishing Queensland as a separate colony in 1859. Soon afterwards, the Government announced it had excised a small curtilage of land surrounding Wolston House, with the intention of gifting the house to the NTAQ as its first property. The house was in a dilapidated condition and the NTAQ’s first project was the restoration and preservation of the buildings.
Fifty-two years later NTAQ remains focused on heritage and environmental education. Through its properties, advocacy and research, the organisation encourages the community to appreciate, care for and engage with our significant places, wildlife, and stories. This work is largely undertaken by the tireless efforts of hundreds of dedicated volunteers. Whilst the goal remains to connect the community with the NTAQ properties and activities, the cost of maintaining and operating these valuable heritage assets is considerable. NTAQ membership fees, property admission fees, sponsorships, partnerships, donations and grants are responsible for the continuation of the organisation and its projects.
NTAQ also advocates for the recognition and care of heritage places throughout Queensland and consists of over 500 volunteers and 340 employees statewide, who are responsible for over ten properties. These properties include: Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Royal Bull’s Head Inn, Wolston House, Brennan & Geraghty’s Store, Grandchester Railway Station, Hou Wang Temple, James Cook Museum, Lyall’s Store, Stock Exchange Arcade, Townsville Heritage Centre and the Zara Clark Museum, all of which are available for public viewing.
As previously mentioned, membership fees are of enormous importance to sustaining the vital conservation work carried out by NTAQ. In return, members are granted free access to NTAQ properties, including the famous Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, in addition to many other discounts and benefits. A full list of membership categories and prices is listed below.
