The Heritage Council of Victoria recognises, protects and celebrates Victoria’s cultural heritage. We advise the government and others on how to conserve and protect historically important objects and places for the enjoyment of current and future generations.

We are an independent statutory body and we provide legal protection for places and objects that are important to the history and development of Victoria.
