Historic Heritage Information Management System

The Historic Heritage Information Management System helps us manage information on over 10,000 heritage sites and items in our national parks system.

The Historic Heritage Information Management System (HHIMS) is a database that contains records for particular heritage sites and items that exist on the New South Wales national parks system. These records help us maintain and provide information about the nature, current status, and location of sites and items. Information from heritage studies and related documents are also included in HHIMS records.

Information in HHIMS:

  • facilitates inquiries
  • supports site/item protection
  • enables better management and research
  • provides secure protection of sensitive cultural and historical information.

HHIMS replaced the previous NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service Historic Places Register in August 2002.

HHIMS data is available to the public and enables the NSW Government to meet its obligations under Section 170 of the NSW Heritage Act 1977.

You can access data from HHIMS in two ways:

  1. Directly through the NSW Government’s data portal – The Central Resource for Sharing and Enabling Environmental Data in NSW (SEED)
