Heritage Newsletter

You can now sign up to receive the Heritage Council of Victoria’s quarterly Heritage Newsletter which will keep you up-to-date with current news, upcoming events, recent registrations on the Victorian Heritage Register, and stories from custodians and community members about our state’s cultural places and objects. We hope the newsletter will both inform and involve you in the work to preserve our cultural heritage for future generations.

If you would like to sign up, head to our home page and enter your email address in the pop up at the very top of your screen. Having trouble signing up? Send the Secretariat an email at heritage.council@delwp.vic.gov.au.

We look forward to sharing the heritage journey with you!
