The Australian Heritage Council is assessing the Abbotsford Convent for potential inclusion in the National Heritage List. The National Heritage List recognises places that are of outstanding heritage value to the nation for their natural, Indigenous and/or historic heritage values.
The Australian Heritage Council’s initial assessment for this place is that it might have National Heritage values. A draft map and draft description of potential National Heritage values are available at the links below.
Please note that existing National, Commonwealth and Victorian heritage listings in Melbourne will not be affected by any potential National Heritage listing of Abbotsford Convent.
