Qld Heritage Register
The Queensland Heritage Register is a statutory list of places that are protected by the Queensland Heritage Act 1992. The Act has different provisions for these categories of places:
- State heritage places
- Archaeological places
- Protected Areas.
The Queensland Heritage Council decides what is entered in and removed from the Heritage Register.
Applications for entry and removal of places are made through the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection.
The Queensland Heritage Council considers every nomination individually and decides its state cultural significance against specific criteria (PDF) in the Queensland Heritage Act 1992.
Over 1600 places are entered in the Queensland Heritage Register. They include houses, rural homesteads, civic buildings, roads, bridges, workplaces, cinemas, landscapes, archaeological sites and trees.
Many are private properties. Some are public and well-known—like Brisbane’s Story Bridge, Jondaryan Woolshed and Paronella Park leisure garden near Innisfail.
The Queensland Heritage Register does not apply to places of cultural heritage significance that are solely associated with places of Aboriginal tradition and Island custom—those places are protected by the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act 2003 (PDF) and the Torres Strait Islander Act 2003 (PDF).
