Heritage Legislation

The Defence Heritage Register is a list of Defence owned or controlled places on the Commonwealth Heritage List (CHL), National Heritage List (NHL) and/or within a World Heritage Listing (WHL). Further information on these lists can be found under the Commonwealth heritage legislative regime.

The Defence Heritage Register can be accessed in two ways:

1 Click on the links below to go directly to the state of your choice:

ACT     |    NSW     |    QLD     |    SA     |    VIC     |    TAS     |    WA     |    NT

2. Defence personnel with access to the Defence Estate Management System (DEMS) can view further information in database form via the Defence Heritage Module.

The information contained in this list is provided in good faith and whilst every effort is made to ensure its accuracy it is not an official indication of the heritage status of a Defence place. Written advice of the correct status of a place is available from the Defence Heritage Team on the contact details below.

The Defence Heritage Unit expressly disclaim all and any persons whatsoever in respect of anything done or omitted to be done by any such person in reliance whether in whole or in part upon any of the contents of this list.

NOTE: Detailed information on most of these places can be obtained by clicking the Place ID number. This links to the Australian Heritage Database on the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities website and we acknowledge their assistance in enabling this. Unless otherwise specified the Place ID number links to the CHL for the place. Where a place is also on the WHL or NHL, then the Place ID number for the WHL or NHL is provided next to that place. The CHL, NHL and WHL is being compiled on an ongoing basis, as identification and assessment work proceeds under the provisions of the EPBC Act. Many more Defence sites may be listed as their heritage values are assessed.

Archival Records are located at the bottom of the page.
