About us

The Hunters Hill Trust is a community organisation with 49 years proud history of helping to preserve the unique heritage of Australia’s oldest garden suburb.  The Trust was formed in 1968 when it was the site of the world’s first green bans.  We have fought alongside others to preserve public lands around Sydney Harbour, including Kelly’s Bush and the Sydney Harbour Defence Lands.

Incredibly, Hunters Hill 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. 

Please help us keep it that way.
