The Historic Houses Association of Australia began in 1988, bringing together the 'friends' of some of Sydney’s most important buildings, such as Elizabeth Bay House and Vaucluse House, to support the NSW Government’s Historic Houses Trust.


In 2014, the association became national and fully independent of government. It is now a registered charity and volunteer organisation, with a growing national membership and reach. The Historic Houses Association of Australia is representing the interests of historic homes and their supporters for the benefit and the understanding of all Australians.


The Historic Houses Association of Australia welcomes any initiatives towards the promotion of the Australian built heritage.
