Australian Heritage Sites
Description:
To find and document locations that are officially listed by the respective authorities in Australia.
Expanded Description:

The aim of this category is to find and document the officially listed cultural heritage sites in Australia We are interested in permanent and immobile sites. The official lists of protected heritage sites in Australia can be found in the following database: http://www.environment.gov.au/cgi-bin/ahdb/search.pl

The Australian Heritage Database is a listing of heritage sites in Australia. It is maintained by the Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts (Australia), in consultation with Australian Heritage Council. There are more than twenty thousand entries in the database, which includes natural, historic and Indigenous places.

Lists covered by the database are:

  • the World Heritage List, places that are of outstanding universal value and have been included on this United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) managed list.

  • the National Heritage List, a long list of natural, historic and Indigenous places that are of outstanding national heritage value to the Australian nation.

  • the Commonwealth Heritage List, a list of natural, historic and Indigenous places of heritage significance owned or controlled by the Australian Government.

  • the List of Overseas Places of Historic Significance (LOPHSA), a list which recognises symbolically sites of outstanding historic significance to Australia that are located outside the Australian jurisdiction.

  • the Register of the National Estate, a list of natural, historic and Indigenous heritage places throughout Australia, frozen in February 2007 until it was replaced by other heritage lists in 2012.
