Australian National Heritage Register

Here in Australia we have a wonderful range of sites that are called Australian National Heritage listed Sites. This is a selection of places that have been considered to be of exceptional heritage importance to Australia and Australians. The list of sites includes criteria that covers historic, indigenous and natural sites.

The benefit of being on the Australian National Heritage Register is that the sites are safeguarded by the terms of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
Here’s a listing of all the sites that are listed on the Australian National Heritage Register, and the states in which they are found. I will be endeavouring over time to write articles about each of these sites for the readers interests.
