Fire emergency

Heritage NSW, in the Department of Premier & Cabinet, the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Advisory Committee (ACHAC) and the Heritage Council of NSW share the nation’s concern over the current fire crisis, the tragic loss of lives, and the impact to wildlife, livestock and property.

If you are an owner of a State Heritage Register (SHR)-listed place affected by the fires, please contact us for support on 02 9873 8500 or via our mailbox: HERITAGEmailbox@environment.nsw.gov.au.

Similarly, if you are aware of any impacts to Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Places and sites, or historic archaeological sites, contact the above number.

Your local Council is the primary point of call for locally significant heritage places managed under Local Environmental Plans (LEPs), but please contact us if you need support in obtaining local contacts or general heritage advice.

The staff of HNSW send our sympathies to everybody affected and offer our strongest support in the management of your heritage places now and in recovery phases.
