ACDHT is a registered charitable trust formed to preserve the history and assist the Department of Conservation (DOC) to restore and maintain the historic sites at North Head and Fort Takapuna (Fort Cautley) as significant tourist attractions and areas of public interest.

Any surplus income from tourist or associated activities is used to further develop DOC capacity to restore the historic, archaeological, and amenity values of the sites for the region.
