The functions of identifying and conserving Australia’s national heritage are shared between all levels of government. The Register of the National Estate, maintained by the Australian Heritage Council, is a listing of those places of Australia’s Indigenous, historic and natural heritage that have special value for present and future generations. Listing on the Register alerts planners, decision makers, researchers and the general community to the heritage value of these places.

In 2002-03, some 12.0% of places on the National Register were in Tasmania. The number of Tasmanian places in 2002-03 was 1,538, an increase of 19 from 2001-02.
