National Heritage places are of outstanding heritage value to the nation and reveal the richness and diversity of Australia’s extraordinarily natural environment.
The Australian Government is now calling for nominations for new places to be included on the National Heritage List.
National Heritage places capture the diversity of stories that have helped to shape our great nation and inform our sense of self.
They tell the stories of our colonial history and the development of modern Australia and chart the complex cultural contributions Indigenous Australians have made to our nation.
This year the National Heritage List has surpassed the major milestone of more than 100 places. We’re now adding to this with additional places that are important to our story as a nation.
In particular, the Government is calling for nominations of Australia’s magnificent deserts and historic benevolent institutions.
Nominations for the National Heritage List close on 6 February 2015.
