As this brief overview shows, both territory and Commonwealth heritage schemes apply in the ACT. There is legislation governing heritage places and objects at both the ACT and the Commonwealth level, and special provision is made for protection of Indigenous heritage. Both schemes allow individuals and community groups to nominate heritage places for protection. The level of protection varies greatly based on the type of heritage listing and it is wise to carefully weigh up the different options if you are considering nominating a place or object for heritage listing.
