Information for solicitors


Below is the suggested wording for your client to use when writing the specifics of their bequest to the Wilderness Society in their Will. 

It is not compulsory they use this exact wording, however, it will reduce misunderstandings and ensure their wishes are met.

“I bequeath to The Wilderness Society Ltd. (ABN 62 007 508 349, ACN 611 229 086) for the purpose of fostering and restoring wilderness in Australia (a specified sum), or (specified items), or (the residue of my estate) free of all duties and the receipt of the Secretary or other authorised officer for the time being shall be a complete and sufficient discharge for the executor(s).”

The Wilderness Society address 

The Wilderness Society 
GPO Box 716 
Hobart, TAS 7001
ABN: 62 007 508 349 

Bequest specifics 

If your client wishes to leave a bequest that is more complicated than the above suggested wording, please contact our bequest officer for a confidential conversation before their Will is completed.
