Our heritage is about our future as well as our past. It is an on-going story that tells us how we have shaped our landscapes, our cities and towns - a story that tells the world who we are.


Some of our most precious heritage is in private hands and it needs our support to ensure a viable future.


The Historic Houses Association of Australia Ltd. (HHA) is a registered charity and volunteer organisation that supports owners and promotes public interest in historic houses and properties throughout Australia. 

HHA Members enjoy special access to an ever-increasing number of HHA network properties. They also have the opportunity to attend events and tours, engage with historians and heritage architects, and to meet private owners where they can discover the rich history of these properties and their collections. 


Join us and help preserve our unique built heritage for future generations to enjoy. 

We seek to shape the future of the built heritage of Australia by acting as a ‘collective voice’ for owners, to ensure their concerns are heard and that their properties are valued for the contributions they make to our society’s ‘sense of place’.
In April 2018 we held our inaugural conference 'Home Heaven Hell' which was sold out with 250 people attending from around Australia.

Open House: Morton House, Woodford

Sunday 16 February, 10:00am – 12:00pm  

The original owners, the Mortons, were inspired by their early connections to Castlecrag and Walter Burley Griffin himself, to build a house that does not intrude on the natural environment. They built around special trees and mass planted native trees and bushes to attract local bird-life. The house has been described as simply, 'putting four walls around a beautiful place.'

Join us on an exploration of this fascinating and very special example of 'organic architecture'.

Walk: Innovative Architecture - The UTS Campus  

Friday 6 March, 10:00am – 12:00pm

After investing more than one billion dollars in the redevelopment of its city campus, the University of Technology Sydney is now home to some cutting-edge educational facilities, dramatic architecture, and stunning interior spaces.

We'll visit the aluminium-clad Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, the gently curving Vicki Sara Building, the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building (designed by Frank Gehry), and UTS Central - the recently completed glass-encased structure showcasing an elegant double-helix staircase. 

Join Beatrice Scheepers in discovering the marvels of this precinct.
