  2. 2. This Place Matters Australia: About the Project About the Project Share your stories, photos, videos and audio clips and help the National Trust celebrate the Places That Matter! All members of the community are invited to pin their stories, photos, videos and audio clips of places that matter to them. As long as the place currently exists, we want any information on why it matters. Anything matters to us if it does to you - it can be because you grew up there, were kissed for the first time there, or just believe the place is important historically or culturally. So pin the places that matter – your houses, gardens, shops, orchards, markets, landscapes, stations and schools and have a look at what matters to us all. To Pin the Places That Matter to you, or to comment on Places that Matter to others, just use this Guide...
