Protecting our past, enriching our future – 50 years of the Victorian Heritage Register

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Victorian state government heritage legislation. In 1974, after years of campaigning by Victorian heritage conservation activists, the first buildings were included in the Victorian Historic Buildings Register to protect them for current and future generations. The Historic Buildings Register eventually became what we know today as the Victorian Heritage Register.

The Heritage Council of Victoria will celebrate this milestone and the many important places and objects protected in the Victorian Heritage Register through various events and partnerships throughout the year.
