NSW Landscape Heritage Workshop

NSW Landscape Heritage Workshop
Join the AILA Landscape Heritage Group to nominate ten significant landscape heritage sites for the NSW State Heritage Register.


AILA NSW has engaged heritage consultants MHQ to prepare a study to identify state significant landscapes. The study, funded by the NSW Heritage Grants program, will be guided by the AILA landscape heritage group (ALHG). The project is in its early research and scoping phase, and aims to identify significant cultural landscapes. The study will also address important heritage conservation areas, heritage curtilages and smaller scale gardens, trees and items that may be suitable for listing on the State Heritage Register - but we need your help.

The workshop is designed to engage and consult our AILA members, landscape heritage professionals and the wider community. MHQ will provide an update on their study progress, and offer workshop participants the opportunity to identify and submit their own significant landscapes for consideration in the study. This workshop will also provide an opportunity to identify significant landscapes and places under threat. There will be a second workshop to summarise the findings of this two year study for our members, professionals and the wider community
