Heritage in the ACT:

The ACT is rich in natural and cultural heritage. Although the city is relatively young, we have many heritage places or objects, including Aboriginal, rural, historic and iconic Canberra places and objects.

The ACT Heritage Council and ACT Heritage work together to recognise, protect, conserve and celebrate these unique heritage places and objects.

The Council is responsible for keeping a register of places and objects in the ACT which have heritage significance at the Territory level. Before a place or object is put on the ACT Heritage Register, it must first be nominated. The Heritage Council will then do its research and if it agrees, will provisionally register the place or object so the community has an opportunity to comment on their decision. Following consultation, the Council will make its final decision.
