The aim of the trust is to conserve and interpret the historic bach communities on Rangitoto Island for the benefit of all New Zealanders.

Following the formation of the trust in July 1997 a number of baches have been restored, one of which has been turned into a museum.

Volunteers may be able to stay over on the island on some weekends.
