Our strategy for war heritage and history

Our plan to help Victorians preserve war heritage and history.

We’re creating a plan to help Victorians preserve war heritage and history, including: 

  • historic heritage – memorials, buildings and collections
  • practices and traditions to commemorate those who have served

The strategy aims to provide working definitions for war-related heritage and clarity around the community’s and government’s role in preserving heritage.

Themes of the strategy

  1. Knowing what we have, what we do, what it means and why it’s significant.
  2. Protecting war-heritage through reforms, providing access and knowledge to people working in conservation.
  3. Supporting ongoing traditions and making heritage accessible to all Victorians.

Activities we'll deliver

  • community consultation
  • war Heritage Roadshow
  • the Veterans Heritage Project
  • Victorian war heritage inventory
  • social research into commemoration
