About this report
Under the Australian Government’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (the Act), at least once in every five year period the Minister must ensure that the National Heritage List and Commonwealth Heritage List are reviewed, and a report of the review is tabled in each House of the Parliament.
The last review and report on the National Heritage List and Commonwealth Heritage List covered the period from 1 July 2008 until 30 June 2013.
This report on the heritage lists covers the five years from 1 July 2013 until 30 June 2018. It highlights the Australian Government’s achievement in developing and extending both the National and Commonwealth Heritage lists.
