Please note that the items listed on this page are correct at May 2009 and are subject to change, please go to www.heritage.gov.au for an updated list of the National Heritage List.

Australia's National Heritage List comprises exceptional natural, Indigenous and historic heritage places that contribute to Australia's national identity. National heritage defines the critical moments in our development as a nation and reflects achievements, joys and sorrows in the lives of Australians. It also encompasses those places that reveal the richness of Australia's extraordinarily diverse natural heritage.

The National Heritage List has been established to list places of outstanding national heritage value to the Australian nation.

Anyone can nominate a place for inclusion in the National Heritage List. The Australian Heritage Council assesses the values of nominated places against set criteria and makes recommendations to the Minister for Environment, Heritage and the Arts who makes the final decision on listing.

There are currently over 80 places on the National Heritage List. Places on the List are protected through the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.

Australia’s 17 World Heritage places are also included on the National Heritage List.
