About the Heritage Council

The Heritage Council of NSW is established under the NSW Heritage Act, 1977 and is an advisory body that includes members of the community, the government, the conservation profession and representatives of organisations such as the National Trust of Australia (NSW).

The Heritage Council makes decisions about the care and protection of heritage places and items that have been identified as being significant to the people of NSW.

The council provides advice on heritage matters to the Minister responsible for heritage in NSW. It recommends to the Minister places and objects for listing on the State Heritage Register.
