It is a member of the National Trust of Australia, which federates the eight autonomous National Trusts in each Australian state and territory.

The National Trust of Queensland is headquartered at 95 William Street in the Brisbane central business district. All members who manage the organisation do so on a voluntary basis.[1]

The organisation conducts the National Trust of Queensland Heritage awards which were previously known as the John Herbert Memorial Awards.[2] The premier award is called the John Herbert Memorial Award in honour of a former President.
