The State Heritage Inventory is a list of heritage items in New South Wales including Aboriginal Places, State Heritage Register, Interim Heritage Orders, State Agency Heritage Registers and Local Environmental Plans.

The Heritage Division is directly responsible for maintaining Aboriginal Places and the State Heritage Register. A new combined map search is now available. For further information about Aboriginal Places and Sites refer to AHIMS Web Services

Whilst the Heritage Division seeks to keep the Inventory up to date, it is reliant on State agencies and local councils to provide their data. Always check with the relevant State agency or local council for the most up-to-date information.

Visit State Heritage Inventory help if you are unfamiliar with this search facility.

Search Aboriginal Places & State Heritage Register

The combined map search below is for Aboriginal Places and State Heritage Register items only. It does not include Interim Heritage Orders, State Agency Heritage Registers and Local Environmental Plans.

The location of Aboriginal Places and State Heritage Register items are marked on the map as a single approximation point for general identification and research purposes only.

Location information for some Aboriginal Places (e.g. burial grounds and sacred sites) have been generalised because of their cultural sensitivity. Location information for restricted Aboriginal Places is not shown at all. If an activity or development is proposed that may potentially impact on or harm (i.e., damage, deface or destroy) an Aboriginal Place, then proponents must undertake a search for the exact boundaries of Aboriginal Places through AHIMS Web Services.

Downloading of State Heritage Register spatial datasets and associated metadata into a Geographical Information System (GIS) software package is available through Data NSW
