Description:
This Category is for Waymarking the historical markers of Australia.
Expanded Description:
Like all countries Australia has valued historic sites which can be shared in Waymarking. Australia has numerous plaques that we would like to share with the rest of the Waymarking Community and the World.

Any plaque issued by a governing body, (a municipality, tourist office or Council, etc.)and Historical Society or Descendants of Historic groups of people, will be considered for inclusion in this category. Normally these plaques are a standard design but can vary between regions.
This category seeks to discover and catalogue these historic sites..

We will also accept cross-waymarking from other countries where Australia and/or Australians have had and influence in their history. This category seeks to discover and catalogue these interesting sites.

The following links will give you some information on some historical sites.

Additional resources will be added as they become available.
