There are many heritage lists (e.g. World Heritage, national heritage, state heritage, local government, National Trust and Indigenous community heritage lists), with varying criteria and laws and regulations to protect heritage places. The Register of the National Estate, originally compiled by the Australian Heritage Commission, is now an information source maintained by the recently formed Australian Heritage Council. The National Heritage List, Commonwealth Heritage List and the Register of the National Estate are nation-wide heritage lists that encompass natural, indigenous and historic places.

The new National Heritage List will be a list of places with outstanding heritage value to the whole of our nation. The heritage values of these places are so outstanding that they are included in the
'matters protected' under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. At 30 June 2005, there was one Tasmanian listing on the National Heritage List; the Port Arthur Historic Site in the local government area of Tasman in the Greater Hobart-Southern Region.
