The NCA manages 19 Commonwealth Heritage listed places and 2 National Heritage listed places on behalf of the Australian Government. These places are identified by the Commonwealth Minister for the Environment as having Commonwealth or National Heritage values. Heritage values are the aspects of a place that give it special meaning or make it important to the community.
The Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act1999 (the EPBC Act) protects all kinds of heritage values from potential impacts that might damage or destroy those values. It also provides a national assessment and listing process for inclusion of places on the Commonwealth and National Heritage lists.The NCA has a responsibility under this legislation to ensure our heritage places are maintained, protected and conserved. Click hereto view the EPBC Act.
Each of these Commonwealth and National Heritage listed places has a Heritage Management Plan (HMP) or a heritage assessment to help guide day-to-day maintenance, potential changes to a place, and protection measures. HMPs are our road map to ensure places are kept in good condition and are safeguarded for the future.
