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.
