The State Heritage Inventory, contains over 25,000 heritage items on statutory lists in New South Wales. This information is provided by local councils and State government agencies. The level of information for each heritage item can range from basic identification information such as name, address and listing to full information such as detailed descriptions, histories, significance and images. While the Heritage Division seeks to keep the Inventory up to date, the most recent statutory listings may not yet be included. Always check with the relevant local council or State agency for the most recent listings.

The Heritage Branch is directly responsible for the State heritage register, a list of items and places that are of particular importance to NSW. The new map search is now available.
