The Trust Talks

How do we learn to identify, appreciate and protect the value of a type of a historical building, a garden or place which has a cultural history going back generations?

Where do we go to learn the stories about our cultural heritage?

The National Trust is proud to present The Trust Talks - a series of speaker events featuring inspiring heritage experts at wonderful heritage locations.  Opening the doors for innovation, collaboration and celebration of our heritage, The Trust Talks provide up to date information about heritage events, relevant information, in depth discussions and debate about heritage conservation in Australia.
