Built Heritage

Built heritage is one of our most important cultural assets. It represents the historical layers of our built environment in places made of brick, plaster, wood, metal and stone.

Many heritage buildings are today used for functions and services that did not exist when they were built.

Following is a collection of documents and resources related to our historical buildings and precincts.
