The Public Trustee was established in 1881 and is well known in South Australia for the Will making, trustee, and estate administration services we provide. It is through the delivery of these services that we have developed the reputation for trust and reliability.

Over the years our core business has expanded to include the following services;

  • offering a general information service about managing your financial affairs
  • making and storing your Will
  • acting as Executor of your Will and distributing your estate according to your wishes
  • assisting you to act as Executor for a deceased estate
  • making and acting as your Enduring Power of Attorney and ensuring your financial affairs are well managed during your lifetime
  • acting as trustee for minors, adults and charitable trusts
  • completing tax returns
  • managing the financial and legal affairs for people who are unable or no longer wish to manage their own affairs
  • examining and regulating the accounts of private administrators (under a legal Order).

We are ready and able to help you plan for your life.


Public Trustee is located in Victoria Square, Adelaide but we make regular visits to a number of metropolitan and regional locations, including the Summit Health Centre, so that all South Australians have ready access to our services.
