The New Zealand Historic Places Trust (Māori: Pouhere Taonga) is a non-profit trust that advocates for the protection of ancestral sites and heritage buildings in New Zealand. It was set up through the Historic Places Act 1954 with a mission to "...promote the identification, protection, preservation and conservation of the historical and cultural heritage of New Zealand" and is an autonomous Crown Entity.
It is governed by a Board of Trustees, currently chaired by John Acland, and a Māori Heritage Council, currently chaired by Tumu te Heuheu. Past chairs include Dame Anne Salmond. The head office is in Antrim House, Wellington, while regional and area offices are in Kerikeri, Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.
It publishes the quarterly magazine New Zealand Heritage.
