The day-to-day management of listed places is undertaken by place managers. Like the places themselves, place managers are extremely diverse, for example, they may be private landowners, parks and wildlife officers, local council staff, or museum curators.
Managing a national or world heritage place brings with it a range of opportunities, challenges and responsibilities. For example, listing requires place managers to protect the heritage values of the site, including through the preparation of a management plan that sets out how the these values will be conserved.
These place managers have access to a support network, communication products and activities that aim to increase public engagement with heritage places. The National Heritage Place Managers' Online Community has been established as an interactive space for national and world heritage place managers to communicate and network with each other as well as staff at the Department. It's also a great place to find information on a range of relevant issues like managing a heritage place, marketing and promotion, news and lots more.
