10 steps to help protect the natural and cultural significance of places
Australian Heritage Commission, 2000
Many government and non-government organisations with an interest in heritage conservation provide information and advice on natural and cultural heritage issues. Some have produced detailed guides and references related to heritage, so you may want to contacts them for more information about the state and area in which you are working.
The Australian Heritage Directory (www.heritage.gov.au) is a gateway jointly sponsored by Commonwealth and state government heritage agencies. It provides links to online information including government and non-government heritage organisations, databases and legislation.
