Congratulations to all of the artists who were invited to interpret ‘The Making of Our Nation', this years National Trust festival theme. This is the third Hunter National Trust art exhibition and we would like to thank those who contributed the event, as well as Mr Ron Ramsey, Director of the Newcastle Region Art Gallery who opened the exhibition on Friday 9 April. Also Lady Elizabeth Macquarie made an appearence.
Newcastle and the Hunter is a significant area of NSW and the second oldest city in Australia. Our cultural heritage is increasingly under threat and unfortunately the Hunter does not always gain the support needed to protect heritage places. For this reason this blogspot has been established not only to raise community awareness of heritage conservation issues, but to also publicise and promote events organised by local National Trust members and the three historic homes managed by the Trust. These are:- Tomago House, Grosmann House & Miss Porters House Join the National Trust of Australia (NSW) online at www.nsw.nationaltrust.org.au
