Heritage items and places

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.

NSW Heritage Inventory

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

The NSW Heritage Inventory offers a full list items and places recognised for their heritage value:

Aboriginal Heritage Information Management System

  • information about Aboriginal objects that have been reported to the Director General, Department of Premier and Cabinet
  • information about Aboriginal Places which have been declared by the Minister for Heritage to have special significance with respect to Aboriginal culture
