Established in 1886 through the Will of Dr William Wyatt, The Wyatt Trust is a leading South Australian philanthropic foundation. Our vision is for all South Australians to have opportunities to participate in the community and live with dignity and hope.

Our Story

Dr William Wyatt and Mrs Julia Wyatt travelled from Plymouth, UK, arriving in Holdfast Bay, South Australia in February 1837.

During his life in Adelaide, Dr Wyatt held a significant number of official positions. He set up his home first in Grenfell Street and later at Kurralta, Burnside. His son, William, the only one of his five children to survive childhood, died in 1872 aged 34. Dr Wyatt’s wealth was derived from his purchase of land in the city and elsewhere in March 1837.
