Australian Heritage Strategy - about the Strategy
About the Strategy
On 1 November 2013, the Government announced the re-starting of the Australian Heritage Strategy as one of Australia’s key heritage priorities.
Media release: A new vision for Australia's Heritage - 4 November 2013
Minister Hunt’s speech to the International Council on Monuments and Sites Australia:
The Australian Heritage Strategy will provide a common framework and priorities for Australia’s heritage and help ensure our heritage is recognised and protected for future generations.
All Australians are encouraged to participate in the development of the Strategy.
The Strategy will address:
- the Commonwealth’s role in heritage
- partnership opportunities
- community engagement with heritage
A draft Strategy will be released for public comment during Australian Heritage Week in April 2014. Your ideas can be sent to us now.
Heritage is central to the Government’s Plan for a Cleaner Environment and is a fundamental pillar of the Government’s vision for Australia – clean air, clean water, clean land and heritage protection.
In finalising the Strategy, the Department will take account of submissions received through past consultation (2011-2013) while actively re-engaging with stakeholders.
