Welcome

The Queensland Heritage Council is the state’s peak body on heritage matters. It works to identify and protect places that have special cultural value to the community and future generations.

The council is established by the Queensland Heritage Act 1992 (PDF) which requires the council to act independently, impartially and in the public interest. See What we do. The council receives professional advice and administrative support from the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection’s Heritage Branch.

The Heritage Council is the key decision-maker on places of cultural heritage significance to Queensland, deciding what is entered in the Queensland Heritage Register.
