What is the Tasmanian Heritage Register

​​​​The Tasmanian Heritage Register is an inventory of those places identified as being important to Tasmania, and Tasmanians, because of their connections to the State's history, culture and society. These places are linked to the cultural fabric that is so important to our local communities, our State's identity and our tourism industry. Each place has the potential to offer unique and special insights into Tasmania’s rich and colourful history, and countless stories. 

A place is entered on the Register if it is assessed as meeting one of eight criteria​ outlined in the Historic Cultural Heritage Act 1995. 

Those places entered on the Register are protected through the Heritage Act to ensure that future changes to the place complement its significant aspects. This does not mean that development can't occur, in fact development and conservation can often work hand in hand, and can be crucial to support the use and appreciation of Tasmania's wonderful heritage.
