Any member of the public, an organisation or local government can nominate a place to the State Register. Nomination forms are available here.
The Heritage Council reviews all nominations to determine if a full assessment should be carried out. This is based on whether it is likely that place will meet the threshold for entry in the State Register.
Not all places nominated to the State Register are assessed or become registered.
The flow chart below shows how the nomination and assessment process works and how places are entered into the State Register of Heritage Places. Please click on the image to view in a larger format.
