Hunters Hill Trust
The Hunters Hill Trust is a community organisation dedicated to preserving the unique heritage of Australia’s oldest garden suburb. The Trust was formed in 1968 when rampant development was destroying historically significant buildings, gardens and open spaces. Hunters Hill would look very different today if it weren’t for the work of early Trust members who developed a town plan for Hunters Hill and documented many of the historically significant buildings. Incredibly, Hunters Hill now has 1,244 listed heritage items, including buildings, sub-divisions, bushland, stone walls and 223 places listed on the Register of the National Estate. It is a place of national significance.
Hunters Hill became the site of the world’s first green bans. Trust members fought alongside others to preserve public lands around Sydney Harbour, including Kelly’s Bush and the Sydney Harbour Defence Lands. The Trust has more than 300 members. We actively contribute to various community forums and work to prevent unsympathetic development or destruction of the built and natural environment. Join the Trust and help us to keep Hunters Hill beautiful. For more information go to www.huntershilltrust.org.au
