Culture and Heritage

Heritage consists of those places, objects, customs and stories that we as a community have inherited from the past and want to hand on to future generations.

Eurobodalla’s heritage is diverse and includes buildings, objects, stories, cemeteries and individual graves, monuments, specific places and larger areas, landscapes, archaeological sites, shipwrecks, relics, bridges, streets, and conservation areas.

Our heritage, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, gives us a sense of the way of life of earlier generations. It enriches our lives and helps us to understand who we are today.

Heritage items and places

Items and places that have heritage significance are recorded in databases maintained by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.

Local studies and projects

Conducting heritage and cultural studies helps recognise and record the items, places and histories that make up our cultural heritage.
