Australia's Heritage Lists - Which List is which?
About the fact sheet
There are many different lists or registers of natural and cultural heritage places throughout Australia. These are not comprehensive lists of heritage places, but lists of the places that have been identified and recorded up to the present time.
A heritage register listing will usually include the location of a place, ownership and title details, a description of the place, and sometimes a statement of significance explaining why the place is important.
Many registers emphasise the physical aspects of a place, or its scientific value, but may not document all the heritage values of a place.
