Heritage places and lists
There are many different lists or registers of natural, historic and Indigenous heritage places throughout Australia. These are not comprehensive lists of heritage places, but lists of the places that have been identified and recorded up to the present time. A heritage register listing will usually include the location of a place, ownership and title details, a description of the place, and sometimes a statement of significance explaining why the place is important.
