We lead on heritage policy development, implementation and reviews, including the Australian Heritage Strategy. We provide the Australian Heritage Council Secretariat, to assist the Council to assess and provide advice to the Minister about places to be considered for inclusion on the National and Commonwealth heritage list. We support the nomination of Australian places to the World Heritage list, and engage with property managers (in most cases State agencies) to support management of places on the National and World Heritage lists. We manage heritage grants, including the Australian Heritage Grants program. We administer the Underwater Cultural Heritage Act and manager the Underwater Cultural Heritage program.
