The National Trust commenced a list of places of cultural heritage significance in Queensland in the 1960s.

This was formalised into the National Trust Register which contains individual buildings, precincts, natural environment places and culturally significant artefacts.

It is one of a number of heritage registers in which places of cultural heritage significance may be entered. Check out the various registers below.



Registers where significant places might be entered

A list of places, trees, natural formations and buildings of cultural heritage significance which are maintained by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP) through the Queensland Heritage Act 1992. This register can be searched on-line through the Queensland Government website.

Search the Queensland Heritage Register.

In other regions of Queensland, heritage places may be included in local government heritage registers. For information about these you would need to contact the relevant local government authority.

Search the Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning Local Government Directory for contact details.

There are currently no cultural places in Queensland on the List, but there are a number of places inscribed under the natural places category including the Australian Fossil Mammal Sites, Fraser Island, Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, Great Barrier Reef, and Wet Tropics of Queensland.
