About this report

Under the Australian Government’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (the Act), at least once in every five year period the Minister must ensure that the National Heritage List and Commonwealth Heritage List are reviewed, and a report of the review is tabled in each House of the Parliament.

The first review and report on the National Heritage List and Commonwealth Heritage List covered the period from 1 January 2004 (when the lists commenced) until 30 June 2008.

This report on the heritage lists covers the five years from 1 July 2008 until 30 June 2013. It highlights the Australian Government’s achievement in developing and extending both the National and Commonwealth Heritage lists.
