About the document
This guide outlines how the different levels of heritage listing in Australia – world, national, state/territory and local are determined. At the highest level are places on the World Heritage List like Kakadu National Park and the Sydney Opera House, while on a local heritage list there might be a nature reserve or the local Post Office.
While all of these places are important, the Australian, state and territory and local government heritage systems distinguish between these levels for legal and practical reasons.
