Valuing our heritage

Updating our Heritage Strategy 2019-2023



Yarra is home to some of Melbourne’s oldest suburbs and architecture and the Wurundjeri people’s connection to this land and waterways extends back tens of thousands of years.





Yarra boasts a diverse multicultural history, and the region has proud industrial roots. Our parks and riverside location also provides us with some impressive environmental heritage.




Right now we are updating the strategy that guides the processes for our management of heritage as well as increasing the community's awareness of and engagement with our heritage.

We are looking at how we can best:

1. Know and understand our history

2. Protect elements of our heritage

3. Support existing community involvement in heritage protection, understanding and education

4. provide opportunities for everybody to be involved
